This request must include your name, Social Security Number, date of birth, the street address of your voting residence and the address to which you could like your ballot to be sent and the reason the voter wishes to vote absentee, (i.e. Uniformed Service or overseas voter).

If you are already registered to vote and have made a timely request for your absentee ballot, you may use the FWAB to vote any time before an election. If you are not registered to vote, the FWAB may be used as a temporary registration, absentee ballot request and ballot if received by the registration deadline.

If you are already registered to vote and have made a timely request for your absentee ballot, you may use the FWAB to vote any time before an election.
