Voting Assistance Guide
The Voting Assistance Guide (VAG) is a compilation of absentee voting regulations, laws, deadlines, and procedures. It is the primary source of information for citizens covered by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) regarding the procedures for registering to vote, requesting a ballot, and voting in their State or territory of legal residence. The VAG is regularly updated to accommodate State changes. An errata sheet will be available once the hardcopy has been published. The online version below is up to date.
In addition to the State deadlines and requirements, changes were made from the previous edition. A summary of these changes can be found here.
