US couple travels 9,300 miles to vote
An American couple has made a journey of 9,300 miles (15,000 kilometers) from India just to vote in the U.S. presidential election, AP reported.
Susan Scott-Ker and her husband have been working in India since the summer. They applied for absentee ballots, but when they hadn't arrived as of last week they quickly made alternative plans, The New York Times reported.
The couple bought airline tickets, and four days later flew from Bangalore to New Delhi to Chicago, and then on to New York.
Scott-Ker says she thought it was "important to stand up and be counted."
She and her husband only became U.S. citizens a year ago. She is from New Zealand. Her husband was born in Morocco.
In all, they expect to spend about $5,000 on the trip.
