From infinity and beyond, he found a way to vote.

Shane Kimbrough, a NASA astronaut currently living aboard the International Space Station, submitted her ballot in the presidential election on Tuesday, according to a NASA Tumblr post.

NASA told Yahoo News that Kimbrough had submitted his ballot in the 2016 election from the space station in the past few days.

For the astronauts who will be in space on Election Day, the voting process begins a year before launch. At that point, they can choose the elections they want to participate in.

Then, six months before the election, the astronauts were given the form “Voter Registration and Absentee Voting Request – Application for a Federal Postal Card.”
