ATLANTA (AP) — NASA astronaut Kate Rubins told The Associated Press on Friday that she plans to cast her next vote from space – more than 200 miles above Earth.
Rubins and two cosmonauts are in Star City, Russia, just outside Moscow.
She's preparing for a mid-October launch and a six-month stay at the International Space Station.
Texas law allows U.S. astronauts to vote from space using a secure electronic ballot.
Mission Control in Houston forwards the ballot to the space station, which Rubins then emails to the county clerk.
