Voting Assistance Information
and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) guarantees United States
citizens overseas the right to vote in federal elections in the United States.
Eligible citizen voters can use the website for the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) to register and request for an absentee ballot on-line by selecting the On-Line Federal Post Card Application (OFPCA). The FVAP website contains valuable information on all aspects of the absentee voting process, particularly the on-line version of the Voting Assistance Guide (VAG), which is an essential tool as voting regulations and procedures vary from state to state, including deadlines for submitting applications. The VAG also indicates if the FPCA or Absentee Ballot must be notarized or witnessed, a service that will be provided at no charge by the Consulate.
