NASA astronaut Kate Rubins casts 2020 vote from space

To infinity and the polls.

NASA astronaut Kate Rubins cast her vote in the 2020 elections from space.

Rubins voted via a secure electronic voting booth abroad the International Space Station and she posted a happy photo to Twitter this week after performing her civic duty.

In 1997 Texas passed a law allowing astronauts to vote during “spaceflight.” Many US astronauts are registered to vote in the Lone Star State, which is home to the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Rubins began a six-month stay at the ISS this month. She cast her 2016 ballot from space as well.

“I think it’s really important for everybody to vote,” Rubins said last month. “If we can do it from space, then I believe folks can do it from the ground, too.”
