U.S. Voter Registration


Two thousand and eighteen (2018) is an interim election year, when the entire House and a third of the Senate will
be up for (re)election. All U.S. citizens living overseas have the right to vote in all U.S.
federal elections, but you must re-register for every election. Some, but not all, Voting
Registration Officers will contact you if you were registered for the last election
- but don’t count on it.

(OVF)’s online voter registration tool (http://www.oversseasvotefoundation.
org/) or on the Federal Voter Assistance Program (FVAP) website (http://fvap.gov/).


Download and print a registration and ballot request (FPCA), fill it in, and post it to
your country clerk’s office – be sure to look up the information on your state’s requirements
by clicking on your voting state at: http://www.fvap.gov/pubs/vag.html.
