    The Best Way to Return Your Ballot (by Oct 2)

    Federal law requires states to send overseas voters their ballots by September 19. That means it is time to start planning how to return your ballot back to your state in time for it to be counted, since the official mail-in deadline may not allow for sufficient time for international mail service.

    The government's recommendation is to ensure your overseas ballot is received by the local embassy or consulate (or sent via international mail) for mailing no later than October 2.

    If you have the option, we strongly encourage you to return your ballot electronically. For those states that offer a fax return option, you may wish to use an online fax service.

    The following options are suggested for those who must return their ballot by mail

  • Make sure your vote counts - Mail in your FWAB by September 3

    Due to expected delays and snarls in the US Postal Service, you need to vote as soon as possible!

    Do not wait in the hopes that your state ballot arrives in time. Vote using a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot. 

    This serves as a backup in case your state ballot does not arrive in time.

    Any voter who believes that his or her ballot will not arrive in time to meet the deadline for ballot submission is entitled to fill out and send in an FWAB.

    If you haven't already done so, mail your FWAB no later than Sept. 3, two months before the election. Whatever you do, DO NOT wait until Sept. 19 to receive your ballot. Send in your FWAB by Sept. 3.
