2022 Post Election Voting Survey Statuses

2022 Overseas Citizen Population Survey

Status: Fielding in Progress

FVAP has contracted Fors Marsh, a data analysis company, to administer its 2022 Overseas Citizen Population Survey (OCPS). The survey will be fielding from March to June 2023. Survey invitations and reminders are being sent out by email and postal mail to a random sample of 45,000 overseas citizens. The survey does not collect any information regarding one's political party affiliation or other political choices. All responses to the survey are kept confidential and will not be associated with one's name. The results are then published in an aggregated format within our 2022 Overseas Citizen Population Analysis.

Please note that not all overseas citizens will receive a survey invitation, but only those that are included within the random sample. To find out more about the OCPS, including finding out how the random sample is created, please see our 2020 Overseas Citizen Population Analysis.

If you received an invitation to take the survey, and are experiencing technical difficulties, or, to unsubscribe from the survey reminder letters and emails, please contact the Fors Marsh Help Desk at:  or call +1877-772-8141
