How to fax in your ballot

The states that require faxed-in ballots are: AK, CA, FL, LA, and OK, and WY (as one option)

If you vote in one of the states that requires faxed-in ballots, here is what you have to do:

FAX your ballot back to your Local Election Official (LEO).

Not sure how to Fax? There’s an app for that. Fill out the attached fax transmission cover sheet: https://www.fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Forms/coversheet.pdf ; sign it, and scan it with the ballot materials to [email protected] and FVAP.gov will fax it in for you.  Do this at least 10 days before Election Day to allow time for FVAP.gov to fax your ballot to your LEO.

FAQs for the 2020 Global Presidential Primary

Don’t miss your chance to vote in person this presidential year! Join Americans around the world and participate in this year’s Global Presidential Primary through Democrats Abroad. Voting in the Primary gives you the chance to help determine the presidential candidates our delegates will vote for in the Democratic National Convention. Details below.


Who is eligible to participate?
Democrats Abroad has just a few requirements for voting in the primary:
  • Be abroad and be a U.S. citizen
  • Be a member of Democrats Abroad
  • Be 18 as of November 3, 2020
  • Not have voted, or plan to vote, in any other 2020 state presidential primary
When can I vote?
Starting February 18th, you can download your ballot from the Democrats Abroad website and vote from over 197 countries! If you'd like to vote in person, our in-person events kick off on Super Tuesday - March 3rd - and run til March 10th.


What if I’m not a member of Democrats Abroad?
You can sign up today, or anytime up until you’re about to vote.


How can I vote in the Democrats Abroad primary?
You can vote in person or online. If you’d like to vote in person, head here to check out the list of official events. We’re holding more than 220 events in 45 countries around the world starting March 3rd.
If you can’t join us in person, as long as you’re a member of Democrats Abroad, you can also vote remotely. Look for your primary ballot in your inbox on February 18, and you can also download the ballot from Democratsabroad.org starting on that date.


I vote in California. Can I vote in the Global Presidential Primary and the California primary?
You can only vote in a presidential primary one time. If you vote in the GPP, but also want to vote in California for the down-ballot primary races (such as for your congressperson), you can! Just don't vote for a presidential candidate on your California ballot.


I've already received my overseas absentee ballots for this year from California. Why should I participate in the GPP instead of voting in the California presidential primary?
While tens of thousands of people will participate in the GPP this year, millions will vote in your home state. That means that your vote in the Global Presidential Primary is more powerful than if you were to vote in California - in fact, it’s 4 times more powerful!


Who will win the Global Presidential Primary?
That’s up to you to decide! We’ll be announcing the results of our primary on March 23, so stay tuned.


I have questions about voting abroad.
Please email [email protected] so we can help!
