Submitting your sealed ballot to the U.S. Consulate: We'd be happy to accept your sealed voting ballot! Once it is received, we will send it to election officials via diplomatic pouch. Please note that it may be faster for you to mail your ballot directly to election officials using the appropriate postage and the fastest method of mailing available.
If you choose to print and mail the ballot request form (a.k.a. the Federal Post Card Application), we can deliver it to the United States for you free of charge. Be sure to sign and date the form, then print the postage-paid template from FVAP.gov (https://www.fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Forms/fwab_envelope.pdf) onto any available blank envelope. Address it to your local election official and bring it to the U.S. Consulate General Calgary. You do not require an appointment to submit voting forms. The Consulate’s address is:
615 Macleod Trail S.E.
Calgary, AB T2G 4T8
Monday - Friday
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
There is no need to schedule an appointment. When you arrive, please inform one of the guards at the security entrance that you are dropping off voting material (FPCA or ballot). They will screen your sealed envelope and then place it in a locked voting box inside the secure area.
The diplomatic pouch goes out once per week. We suggest you submit your ballot a minimum 20 days prior to your State's acceptance date to ensure timely receipt.
Please note that all visitors to the Consulate are subject to security screening and you will not be permitted to bring electronic devices, including cell phone inside the facility. Please note that it can take up to four weeks for mail to reach its destination if sent by an embassy or consulate via diplomatic pouch. Your envelope will be postmarked the day it is received and it will enter the U.S. postal system.
