What's harder than paying taxes overseas?


I got an absentee ballot in the mail today from Jefferson Parish. It contained several very important levy measures - increasing funding for Louisiana schools, storm drainage systems, and parks and community centers. All things I am highly in favor of.

The only problem? The ballot was due on election day - March 31st.

The earliest any of my friends here have gotten their absentee ballots is just one day after it was due. So don't count on me turning the tide should the next presidential election come to a hand-count. I am out of the race.
