We are now 45 days away from the elections, and there is no time to waste!
If you elected to receive your ballot by email, you should receive it by Saturday, September 19 (not sure whether or not you did? Chat with someone for help on votefromabroad.org). If you must send your ballot back by postal mail, please send it by Monday, September 21 to ensure it gets back to the U.S. on time! You can save tons of money by sending it back through the U.S. Embassy (more on that below).
We are still always looking for volunteers for the global network and DA Colombia (respond to this email for more info). If you don’t have time to volunteer but still want to help in other ways, consider the following:

FEDERAL WRITE-IN ABSENTEE BALLOT (FWAB)
If for any reason, you do not receive your ballot (having registered and requested one) and the time is ticking, you can mail in the FWAB. This ballot serves as a back-up ballot. It is official and counts. You can find an FWAB at https://www.votefromabroad.
Once you mail this in, you do not need to send in the other ballot should it come in later. We do recommend, as with the state ballot, follow up. Contact your local election office. Check in with friends and family as well to ensure they are doing the same.
