I think I've now completed the process to submit my absentee ballot.
Minnesota made it quite easy . . . I was able to complete my request and overseas registration (FPCA) by scanning and emailing the documents to the Hennepin County election officials.
They acknowledged that when it was received, then sent me the ballot paperwork as PDFs via email.
Those then had to be printed, and snail-mailed back, but overall turnaround was about a week.
Now all that's left is watching the election coverage. I normally get all my U.S. news from The Daily Show and The Onion, but I'll be curious to see what TVNZ do for election night (afternoon for us).
