FVAP Purpose

The Federal Voting Assistance Program exists to:

  • Assist uniformed services and overseas voters exercise their right to vote so that they have an equal opportunity with the general population to have their vote counted.
  • Assist the States in complying with relevant federal laws by providing current information.
  • Advocate on behalf of the uniformed services and overseas voters, identifying impediments to their ability to exercise their right to vote, and proposing methods to overcome those impediments.
