Is This Tyranny? Notes from the election’s sidelines

Written by Feisal G. Mohamed 6 April 2020

"A funny thing happened in 2008: I lost the right to vote. Having been a non-resident of Canada for five years, I could no longer cast an absentee ballot. And not being a citizen of the United States, I could not, still cannot, vote where I live. So there it is. I am, in the eyes of the world’s elections agencies, an extravagant and wheeling stranger of here and everywhere." (Mohamed, 2020)
