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.
