Voters from these States should visit FVAP.gov to register and request their absentee ballot for the August and September 2012 State Primary elections listed below:
NOTE for August Primaries: If you have not received your requested State ballot, submit the back-up Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) at FVAP.gov (see FWAB information below).
All members of the U.S. Uniformed Services, their family members, and citizens residing outside the U.S. who are residents from these States should submit an FPCA for these elections by going to FVAP.gov or by following the instructions in the Voting Assistance Guide, also available at FVAP.gov.
Be sure you include an email address, phone number, and/or fax number on your absentee ballot application in case your local election official needs to contact you. Remember, many States allow you to submit your form electronically, and deliver your ballot electronically, or provide online ballot access. Go to FVAP.gov or your State’s election website to see how you can return your form.
The FWAB is a backup ballot. If 30 days before the election (or longer based on your location) you think you will not receive your State ballot in time to vote and return it (especially in August Primary States), vote the FWAB at FVAP.gov. The FWAB is also available in embassies and consulates and military installations around the world.
