November - 60 Day Notice
U.S. General Election: November 8

Did you know that all absentee ballots submitted timely and according to State requirements are counted for every election? It only takes a few quick steps to make sure your vote is counted no matter where you are in the world. To register and request your ballots, complete the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) using the FPCA online assistant, or fill out the PDF, or pick up a hardcopy version from your Voting Assistance Officer or nearest U.S. Embassy or Consular Office. Be sure to double-check your contact information is accurate in case your election office needs to reach you.

Please ensure your election office is kept up-to-date with your Authorized Military Mailing Address as provided by your servicing Military Post Office, and remember to follow postal guidelines when sending in your registration and ballot request forms, as well as returning your ballot.  If mailing from outside the U.S., ensure there is proper postage if using a foreign mail service.  As always, you can contact your election office to ensure they received your information by sending them an email or giving them a call!

To find your State's election website for specific information on candidates, elections, contact information, and links to your local election offices, visit FVAP's contact page.

Remember - absentee ballots count.  So make sure you complete and send in your State ballot as soon as it arrives.  If you don't receive it by Oct. 8, you can use the backup Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot, also available at
