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 Montreal. The Consulate’s address is:
1134 Ste Catherine West (corner of Stanley)
Montreal, QC H3B 1H4
Monday / Wednesday / Friday
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 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.
Our (same day) out-going mail service is currently reduced to a minimum of 1x/week although sometimes it's 2x/week. You’re cautioned to expect at least 2-3 weeks clearance time just in case for it to be delivered to the appropriate election office in the United States. Your envelope will be postmarked the day it is received and it will enter the U.S. postal system.
