Overseas U.S. citizen voter: All you need to know
The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) is a Department of Defense (DoD) organization that works to ensure Service members, their eligible family members, and overseas citizens are aware of their right to vote and have the tools and resources to successfully do so — from anywhere in the world.
FVAP encourages the use of the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to start the absentee voting process as it is standardized for use across all States and will extend your eligibility to receive a ballot for all federal elections for at least one calendar year. The FPCA acts as both a registration and absentee ballot request form. We encourage overseas citizen voters to submit a new FPCA every year and when they move.
Register to vote, request an absentee ballot or check the status of your ballot. Select your State or territory of legal residence to get started.
