I voted in the General Election on November 3rd, do I need to register/request a ballot again?
MAYBE! It depends on how you requested your ballot. Head to: www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do to check your voter registration status. Once logged in find in the bottom left box "click here for Absentee ballot status." In the pop up window if you see an option for January 5th election then you should receive a ballot. If not, then you need to do a FPCA ('overseas' ballot request). Head to www.votefromabroad.org to get started. Find out more information on voting in the Georgia runoff here.
I voted in the Democrats Abroad Global Primary, do I need to register again?
YES! Democrats Abroad runs its own primary election which decides how Democrats Abroad’s delegates will vote at the Democratic National Convention. It’s just like the presidential primary in your voting state. Our delegates to the convention work to raise awareness of specific issues facing Americans abroad.
Voting in the global primary did not register you to vote in your State’s general election. You should confirm your registration status directly with your state’s board of elections. To find those details go to www.votefromabroad.org/states
Everyone should request their overseas absentee ballot from your US voting state this year. Doing so will ensure that you receive all overseas absentee ballots relevant to you this year — including the general election in the fall, as well as any special elections and local and state primaries.
