How To Fax Your Ballot Back Without A Fax Machine

Thanks to DA Germany for putting together this information! 
Some states require that ballots must be returned by regular mail or fax. If you do not have access to a fax machine, you can use the DoD FAX SERVICE.
  • What is the DoD Fax Service? 
If you need to send your election materials to your election official by fax but do not have access to a fax machine you can email them to [email protected] and FVAP will fax your election materials for you. This service is fax only. If your State accepts your election materials by email, you should email them directly to your election official. FVAP will not transmit email to email transactions.
  • Does it matter what size paper I use?
    No. Any paper size is acceptable as long the information is legible. 
    Correction: Yes, create US letter-sized PDFs to ensure the ballot information all fits on the fax sheet print out.
  • You will need to print and fill out this Voter Transmission Cover Sheet-In Bound From Voters. Voters should use this fax transmission cover sheet as a cover sheet when faxing or emailing election materials back to their local election office.
If your forms can be emailed, DO NOT USE [email protected]. Email them directly to your election official. Email addresses for your election official can be found at
