Astronaut Kate Rubins Votes From Space: ‘I Believe Folks Can Do It From The Ground, Too’


Most Americans agree that the upcoming election is the most important one in decades — maybe ever. That can be seen just about everywhere. And if voter turnout is any indication of just how much this election means, then it’s definitely on the top of everyone’s minds. More votes have already been cast in this election through early voting than ever before.

Thousands are voting by absentee ballot this year with concerns about the health crisis. Voting by mail has always been useful, but this year, it’s an even more important right to ensure that everyone who wants to vote is able to, regardless of location, or other obstacles. And one American astronaut just proved that we don’t have many good excuses when it comes to not voting.

That’s because astronaut Kate Rubins just has cast her ballot from the International Space Station. She says she considered it a great honor to get to vote from space. Kate took to Twitter to share that she had voted. “We fill out a form and we vote via absentee ballot,” she said. “If we can do it from space then I believe folks can do it from the ground, too.”

She’s absolutely right. Kate is an inspiration in so many ways, but making sure that her vote will be counted is definitely high on the list.
