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.
We are running calling campaigns to help voters in swing states get registered to vote in November. Sign up as a volunteer with Call Hub and reach out to people who have requested to be contacted!
- Call from your computer or phone whenever it is convenient for you
