It does feel frustrating to know that the outcome of the US election will affect the world yet we (obviously) don’t get to vote. The Guardian seeks to remedy this by offering ways non-Americans can affect the election. Non-Americans aren’t allowed to donate money to partisan organisations, but there are non-partisan organisations you can donate money to, like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which has fought for for civil rights for nearly a hundred years and works to get as many African Americans and other minorities as possible voting.
I don’t think I’ll be writing to a Clark County resident, though. Sure, maybe a hand-written, courteous letter might not come across as too obnoxious, but as the Guardian itself points out, how would you feel if foreigners wrote to you begging you to vote for someone? How could you write a letter that wouldn’t be offensive? The three prominent Britons who’ve written examples certainly haven’t succeeded. I can’t believe anyone who wasn’t already a democrat would be convinced.
