The State of Electronic Voting for Overseas Voters in America

County recorder: Thank you for registering. Here is your username and password to login to the overseas voter website to upload your ballot.
Me: *fails to login*
Me: *attempts password reset*
Website: “We’ve never heard of you”
Me: Dear County Recorder, WTF?
County Recorder: You have to register first.
Me: I thought I already registered.
County Recorder: No, you have to get in touch with the county recorder using [this form] to register.
Me: *Rolls eyes and completes form again.*

County recorder: I’m sorry the system is so difficult to work with. The reason you were unable to upload your ballot is that an account with the Secretary of State’s secure website has not yet been requested & authorized for you (step # 5 in the instructions). It is quite counterintuitive so I appreciate your frustration.
Me: *Reads step 5. Determines this is the step I have completed three times now. Googles to find fax machine. Gets stuck in 1985. Sobs.*
