Time is running out for U.S. overseas voters to file their registration/ballot request for the upcoming presidential election, so visit OverSeasVoteFoundation.org today for easy and innovative online voter registration tools and services.
Voter Registration and Ballot Request:
U.S. overseas and military voters accomplish these actions simultaneously by filing a single form. Assistance to complete the form per state requirements, mailing addresses, deadline information and help desk services are available at OverSeasVoteFoundation.org.
"Voters naturally associate Election Day with casting their ballots, forgetting that as overseas or military absentee voters they need to file their registration/ballot request paperwork each election year – usually 30 days in advance – to receive their absentee ballot," stated Chip Levengood, Chairman of Overseas Vote Foundation. "With the race as close as it is, this is another election year where overseas and military votes could make the difference."
Overseas Vote Foundation urges overseas and military absentee voters to file the registration/ballot request form as soon as possible. Timely filing qualifies voters to use the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot in the event that their ballot is late.
