How can I register to vote as a military or overseas voter? Fill out and return the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The FPCA may be used to register to vote and also identifies you as a voter covered by *UOCAVA* (Federal law providing special protections). For the 2014 General Election and all subsequent elections, you may use the FWAB for registration and voting in Federal, State and local elections. If using the FWAB for registration it must be submitted by the registration deadline. What is my voting residence? A voter's residence is a place where his or her home is, and to which, when absent, he or she has the intention of returning. Do I need to claim a political party to vote in primary elections? Yes. It is necessary for you to have been a registered member of that party on December 31 immediately preceding the primary election. How can I submit my FPCA? By mail, email or fax. In addition, for the 2014 General Election,**UOCAVA** voters may be able to access an online ballot delivery system.

How often must I submit my FPCA? The FPCA is good for one election year. You should also submit a new FPCA every time your address changes. If I am currently registered to vote, how may I request an absentee ballot? Fill out and return the FPCA to your local election office. How can I return my voted ballot or Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB)? By mail. What must I do to use the FWAB and can I use the FWAB to vote in State and local elections?
