This form allows you to register to vote and identifies you as a voter covered by *UOCAVA* (Federal law providing special protections). What is my voting residence? The place you consider your true, fixed and permanent home. Do I need to claim a political party to vote in primary elections? Yes. How can I submit my FPCA? By mail, email or fax if you are already registered. If you submit your FPCA by email or fax, you must also submit the original FPCA by mail. If you are not already registered, the FPCA must be mailed. How often must I submit my FPCA? The FPCA is good for all regularly scheduled general elections for the calendar year it is submitted. You should submit a new one every time your address changes or every year. If I am currently registered to vote, how may I request an absentee ballot? If you are already registered, you may fill out and return an FPCA or submit a letter (include: name, voting residence, address where the ballot should be sent, contact information, signature and date) to your local election official to request an absentee ballot by the ballot request deadline. How can I return my voted ballot or Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB)? Voted ballots or FWABs must be returned by mail. In certain emergency situations as declared by the Secretary of State, Idaho may allow you to return your voted ballot by email or fax. What must I do to use the FWAB and can I use the FWAB to vote in State and local elections? You must be registered to vote to use the FWAB. Idaho allows you to use the FWAB to vote in any election for Federal, State and local offices and non-candidate ballot issues. I am an American citizen, but I have never lived in the U.S., can I register to vote in this State? No. Will I need a notary or witness for my FPCA or FWAB? No witness or notary is required. Where can I find information about the candidates and/or other items that will be on my ballot?
