Quebec-based Americans Kimberly Waletich Johnston (above), Randi Weitzner (first below) and Stacy Chriswell (second below) have all already voted in the upcoming U.S. election, and are encouraging their friends to do so. “It’s very important that we vote, because our votes count and we have power, even from here,” Chriswell said.

Barbara Blacker Bédard, a hairdresser who has lived in Quebec City for most of the last two decades, wanted to make absolutely sure she received her absentee ballot from her home state of Washington. She has voted in every presidential election, but this year was especially important.
