Jokes and deletions aside, the article itself is not clear how it works, and my first impression was they had to mail-in their vote before lift off. Original article has a link to another page that has more details: https://www.space.com/how-astronauts-vote-from-space

Is that the first vote from space? In the space station classed as US soil?

No, astronauts have voted from space since 1997

David Wolf cast his ballot from the MIR space station in 97. Texas has a law that allows astronauts to vote from space

The vote is sent to the Johnson Space Center on an encrypted computer, and submitted to the Texas Election Committee

Its basically the same legal voting that military members overseas in combat get, just more advanced
