    How to Send Your Ballot Home from the Czech Republic

    You've gotten your ballot, and now it's time to send it back to the US. But how? Here's a short explainer. 

    Fax plus postal mail states (Alaska, California, Florida, Louisiana, and Oklahoma) 
    Fax machines are not prolific in the Czech Republic. Instead we recommend email to fax! There are many commercial services available, such as or, you can also google "email to fax solutions" for more options.

    Postal mail only states (Alabama*, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey**, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin)
    Postal returns are slow this year, so if you're planning to send your ballot by Česká pošta, get started now! If you're looking for other solutions you can also: 

    Send your ballot via courier (FedEx, DHL, etc). 
    Call your local election office to check out the best address, and then check out courier solutions. The cheapest we've found so far is DHL's Service Point. If you go by a DHL service point and use an Obal Express Easy 1 - obalka, it costs 1130 CZK to courier your ballot back to any point in the US. Pick up services are more expensive. There are many other courier solutions available as well, this is not a recommendation or advertisement. 

    Note: do you know a cheaper courier solution for shipping to the US? Let us know! 

    Email/online states (Alabama*, Arizona*, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska*, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Washington State, Washington DC, West Virginia, Wyoming

    Follow the instructions on your ballot material and ask us if you have questions! Also, don't be tempted to delay. State election offices are handling massive quantities of absentee ballots this year and the sooner voters from abroad send ours in the better.

    *Alabama, Arizona, and Nebraska voters should ask their local election offices about voting online.  

    ** If you email your ballot to New Jersey, you must also postal mail it back in.
