THE JOURNEY OF A US ELECTION BALLOT FROM SRI LANKA TO THE US
Posted on November 6th, 2020

Chandra Fernando 

During this unusual time, I want to share with you, the time, energy, and cost of participating in the US Elections. This is an example of the civic duty of US  citizens who take presidential elections seriously and try their best to have a voice in a democratic process important to all citizens. 

As your readers try to understand the complicated procedure of the American political process and try to decipher the steps of the electoral college operation, please note the dedication of the more than three million expats who this year have participated in this democratic exercise.

  1. Outspoken Sri Lankan Says:

    Thank you Chandra, We need this dedication. A new administration is a good place to start without casting doubt and making allegations when only we hold the power to prove who we are. We cannot fault anyone if we don’t do our part. If we begin with the vote, it is a strong foundation. I will discuss plans when you get back to the US. Anjalika
