Guidance to Submit your Vote from the UAE

The Democrats Abroad UAE Chapter is hosting a webinar on September 16 at 7:30 PM, where we will cover the information that will guide you to mail/send/fax your ballot (Depending on your state requirements) after you have received your ballot.

If you have successfully requested your ballot via and you have emailed your Local Election Office (LEO) to confirm they received it, what is your plan to return your ballot? You should receive it via email by September 19 (Ballot Day). If you do not get it, contact your LEO or us immediately ([email protected]).

We will cover the below main points during the webinar:

  • The steps you should take after you receive your ballot if your state allows mail/online ballot submission, Fax or only mail. Each state has different requirements in place for returning ballots (Check your state’s requirements by following the prompts of this link:
  • Information regarding mailing your ballot via a diplomatic pouch through the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi or the US Consulate General in Dubai.
  • Information about the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) (aka “Backup Ballot”). We recommend any of the states that require ballots to be returned by mail, to fill in and submit FWAB as soon as possible since the backup ballot will be counted in case your normal ballot is not received on time.
  • Answering any questions or comments that you may have regarding voting from abroad.
