    You mean my absentee ballot was not counted in this election??? That’s disgraceful and dishonest as the final outcome is still actually unknown although I don’t think the absentee ballots will change the outcome. That means my vote was meaningless; it wasn’t counted, so as an American citizen I did not have a vote in this election.
