All Uniformed Services members residing outside of their voting jurisdiction, their eligible family members and citizens residing outside the U.S. who are residents of these States and would like to participate in these elections should submit a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA), which acts as a request for voter registration and a request for an absentee ballot. FVAP recommends using the online assistant to prepare, print and sign an FPCA at FVAP.gov.

Be sure you include an email address, phone number and/or fax number on your FPCA in the event your local election official must contact you. Remember, many States allow you to submit your FPCA electronically and are required to deliver your blank ballot electronically (by email or fax) or provide online ballot access. Go to FVAP.gov or your State’s election website to see how you can return your forms.

Vote the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) 

The FWAB is a backup ballot. If you have not received your requested State ballot 30 days before the election or you think you will not receive your State ballot in time to return your ballot, prepare and print the FWAB at FVAP.gov. You will then need to sign and submit the FWAB to your local election official. The FWAB is also available in embassies, consulates and military installations around the world.
