Voting assistance for Service members, their families, and overseas citizens
Absentee Voting Overview
Americans can vote. Wherever they are.
FVAP – Federal Voting Assistance Program
FVAP encourages the use of the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to start the absentee voting process as it is standardized for use across all states and will extend your eligibility to receive a ballot for all federal elections for at least one calendar year. The FPCA acts as both a registration and absentee ballot request form. We encourage overseas citizen voters to submit a new FPCA every year and when they move.
