Edwin Sutton, 29, resigned himself to not voting in what he considers to be the most important election of his lifetime.
He’s from Miami, but currently lives in New York where he works as an actor, singer and drag queen.
Sutton said his absentee ballot never came in the mail.
“I was just devastated,” said Sutton. “I felt powerless.”
After posting on Facebook about his frustration, a fellow member of The New York City Gay Men's Chorus unexpectedly bought him a one-day round trip ticket to Miami.
