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 Toronto. The Consulate’s address is:
Entrance at 225 Simcoe Street
Toronto, ON M5G 1S4
Monday – Friday
9:00 a.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. Since you will not be entering the building, you will not have to go thru security screening.
The schedule for diplomatic pouch changes and there is no set departure day. Normally it takes between 1-2 weeks from the date the FPCA or ballot is dropped off 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.
