Voting from Italy (6 replies)

Rather than to devolve into political discourse in this forum (something we’ve clearly avoided up to just now), the better topic might be how to vote in US or UK elections from Italy. How much lead time is needed? Where does one get a ballot? How does one keep a voter registration active from afar? Any other issues in this process? In this way we can dispense with correcting the political score (someone here said what good would it do anyway) and just vote in the way it all gets resolved in a democracy. If this becomes a political forum, I am so outta here.

Why Italy? (7 replies)

Very interesting observation on why Italy is now the epicenter of the COVID19 Virus. A show store owner in Florence told me about this practice of Italians selling their factories to the Chinese but I had no idea to what scale. "Many Italians in Northern Italy have sold their leather goods and textiles companies to China. Italy then allowed 100,000 Chinese workers from Wuhan and Wenzhou to move to Italy to work in these factories, with direct flights between Wuhan and Northern Italy. This continued post outbreak, so is it mere coincidence that Northern Italy is now Europe’s hotspot for Corona Virus"?
