Extreme Voting: How Astronauts Cast Ballots from Space

Call it the ultimate absentee ballot. NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station have the option of voting in [today’s] presidential election from orbit, hundreds of miles above their nearest polling location.

Astronauts residing on the orbiting lab receive a digital version of their ballot, which is beamed up by Mission Control at the agency’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston. Filled-out ballots find their way back down to Earth along the same path.”
