I've lived here for a long time. Which state should I register in?

You vote in the state and county of your last residence. Children of American citizens who have never lived in the U.S. vote in the State and County of their parents last residence.

If I was registered to vote last year, do I need to register this year?

Yes, a new law was passed this year that all citizens have to re-register for an absentee ballot regardless of whether or not youve voted in the past.

I heard they dont even count absentee votes.

All ballots that are legally cast must be counted. It is merely a myth that ballots cast from absentee voters are not counted
One of the reasons why each states Secretary of State certifies their states elections at the end of November or early December is that they are busy counting a processing the votes of military and absentee voters that may have arrived after election day.

My vote doesnt matter, Im from New York.

Whos knows what can change over the next 6 months Congressional races are close We want to create and Israel Bloc of 100,000 voters, to send the message that Israeli voters are a group to reckon with

I dont feel comfortable voting in an election of a country that I no longer live in.

The next President will have a more profound, direct and immediate effect on your lives (safety, security) than any other American around the globe. Joe Schmo in Montana goes out to vote every election, even though the identity of the next president will barely impact his life - how can you not?
