Absentee Voting

Absentee Voting
by Caitlin Mayo, BSW Intern

How do I vote when I am away from home?
If you are away from home, you can vote by absentee ballot. An absentee ballot allows you to submit your vote before Election Day. You can return your ballot after you vote by mail to your local election officials.

How can I get an absentee ballot?
To receive an absentee ballot, you can contact your local government election department. Your state/territorial election office is also a resource that might be able to provide you more information. While the deadline to request a ballot has passed, be sure to get your ballot in on time if you have already requested a ballot!

How can I get an absentee ballot if I am outside of the United States?
If you are outside of the United States, you can contact the state/territorial election office where you hold legal voting residence. You can also get information online from the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) or call an international FVAP hotline.
