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 Vancouver. You do not require an appointment to submit voting forms. The Consulate’s address is:
1075 W. Pender St.
Vancouver, BC T2G 4T8
Monday - Friday
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
There is no need to schedule an appointment. Upon arrival, a consulate guard will request that you pass through a security check screening and you will not be permitted to bring electronic devices, including cell phone inside the facility before depositing your sealed submission in a secure box inside the controlled entry area. Your envelope will be date stamped the day it is received and it will enter the U.S. postal system.
We will be supporting two deliveries per-week on Tuesday and Thursday as well as an Election Day run to the USPS. Travel is from our location in Vancouver to Blaine, WA. It is same day delivery (travel time varies due to traffic and other factors).
