Encourage Your Marine to Vote!
The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) offers voting help for uniformed service members, their families, and citizens living outside the U.S.
Marines can register and request an absentee ballot with a single form: The Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The FVAP recommends mailing the Federal Post Card Application to your local Election Official at least 45 days prior to the election.
The Election Official then approves your Registration/Request and mails your ballot. Most states begin mailing ballots 30-45 days before an election. If you have not received your ballot two weeks before the election, contact your local election official.
When you receive the absentee ballot, complete and return it to your Election Official and your vote is counted!
