You may choose to have your Vote-by-Mail ballot mailed, e-mailed, or faxed to you.
Regardless of the delivery method, ballots for Military and Overseas voters will initially be sent no later than 45 days prior to an election.
Vote-by-Mail ballot requests can be made by phone, mail, e-mail, fax, in person at any one of our branch office locations, or by using the web form below.
You can also visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program's website at fvap.gov to submit a Federal Post Card Application and Absentee Ballot Request (FPCA).
If you would prefer to print and return your Vote-by-Mail ballot request, you may use one of the following forms:
- Civilian and Military Overseas Voters: You may only return your ballot by fax or mail.
- Domestic Military Voters: You may only return your ballot by mail or in person.
Vote-by-Mail ballots cannot be returned by e-mail.
If you are already registered and have already requested a Vote-by-Mail ballot, but did not receive your ballot in time to vote and return it, you have the right to vote using a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB).
- The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot is a back-up or emergency ballot used for any federal, state, or local election.
- The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot may not be used to request a ballot or update a voter's record.
