Ballots for the 2020 general election should have now arrived in your inbox by now! (You haven’t requested your ballot yet? Do it today: votefromabroad.org).
If you are from the great states of Arkansas, California, Florida, Louisiana*, or Oklahoma you must return your ballot via fax or postal mail. This year, fax is the quicker and more secure option of the two. We strongly recommend faxing your ballot if you vote in one of these states, using a online fax website or mobile app.
Have you not used a fax machine in decades, or ever? Or do you need help scanning your ballot to send via email? Not a problem! Join us on Friday, September 25th, 2020, from 4:30 - 7pm as we’ll provide tech support to help you fax and email. We’ll also be around to answer any questions on how to still request your ballot and vote in the upcoming election as well as how to get involved in getting out the vote in Berlin.
*Louisiana voters must get their Local Election Official's approval to return a voted ballot electronically.
RSVP and help us out by sharing this event with your friends and larger network.
Please wear a mask at the event and be considerate about maintaining distance between other attendees.

Join us September 25th, or any Friday until November, to speak to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you're having about voting from abroad. We'll be here from 6-10pm CEST (Paris) / 12pm-4pm (U.S. Eastern)
How is it done on Zoom? You'll come into the main room and be paired 1:1 with a volunteer into a breakout room to ensure privacy and that you can get all your questions answered. It couldn't be easier.
More information: The easiest way to request your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes just a few minutes to complete and send in your form to the US state where you last lived. The website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to voting abroad, or if you haven’t done it in a while, you may have additional questions. That’s why we’ll be here to help.
If you can’t make it, you can always email us at email@example.com or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you.
