Last Chance to Register

If you STILL need to register to vote and are worried it might be too late, here is a list of states that allow overseas voters to register on the day before or day of elections, and those states that do not require registration.

Some states have very tight deadlines for when your completed ballot must arrive. Read carefully!

Also, please note that given the late date, any interested voter should send a backup ballot (FWAB), too. If you do not immediately receive your ballot after requesting it, proceed immediately to instructions on completing your backup ballot. Then send this in as you would your regular ballot.

All times listed in local time zone.

Is your state not listed?

For other states, the deadline to register to vote has passed, but it's still a good idea for to submit your FPCA NOW so that you're on the voter rolls for your state's next election. (Ballot request deadlines are later in many states.)
