US Embassy’s 2016 Voting Party – RSVP Deadline Extended!

If you want to attend the Embassy’s party on Oct 14th, you still can! Guest list is growing but …

Dems Abroad site www.votefromabroad.org or the federal site at www.fvap.gov

 

Ask to have your ballot sent by email. Your local election official will send it as soon as they receive and process your registration.

 

Check your state’s deadlines on the VFA site at:

If you wait till the 14th to register at the party, you should also get a Federal Write-in Ballot, and send both back via the Embassy. Just in case!

 

If you’ve got your ballot and want to drop it in the box at the party, be sure it’s got enough US postage. The Embassy will get it to the US, but it has to be mailed on to your local election official.

 

If you’ve already sent your ballot, the Embassy staff say they’ll be happy to have you come anyway. Drop an empty envelope in the ballot box, with “I already voted!” written on it. And listen for the drum roll as you drop it in!
