US Astronauts can vote in elections by email from space!

Being in orbit around the Earth does not prevent American astronauts from voting in elections in their country. In fact, the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station are authorized by Texas law to deposit their ballots by electronic voting and that since 1997.

Ballots are sent by secure e-mail the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center of NASA and then passed on the astronauts’ home counties in Texas.
