NASA astronaut Kate Rubins casts ballot from space | Voice...

With her job taking her away from home on election day, NASA astronaut Kate Rubins cast a unique early ballot on Thursday, voting on board the International Space Station (ISS), more than 200 miles above Earth.

From her Twitter account at NASA Astronauts, Rubins posted a picture of herself smiling widely and pointing to a handwritten sign that said, “ISS Voting Booth.”

Rubins is among several NASA astronauts registered in Texas, home of the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Texan law allows them to vote from space using a secure electronic ballot that Mission Control will forward to their respective district clerks.

Rubins, the first person to sequence DNA in space, is currently on board the International Space Station for a six-month stay. She plans to work on cardiovascular experiments and do research in the space station’s Cold Atom Lab.

It will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the continuous human presence on the space station and welcome members of the second SpaceX commercial crew mission, expected to arrive in late October.
