Get your vote counted

This year, the entire U.S. House of Representatives, a third of the U.S. Senate and 36 State Governors will be elected. To ensure your absentee ballots are sent to you, it’s important to submit a new Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) — even if you just voted in November. Visit FVAP.gov to use the online FPCA assistant to help you complete the form, and find more information about the voting process and your State’s requirements and deadlines.

The FPCA is a registration and absentee ballot request form. State laws vary greatly in regard to how long your FPCA is valid. To be sure you qualify to vote in this year’s elections, we recommend you complete and submit a new one now.

As part of a highly mobile group, it’s important for you and your family members to notify your election office of updates with every change of address — including deployments and subsequent returns — to ensure they know where to send your ballot. You can use the FPCA to update your mailing address and other contact information (you can submit as many FPCAs as you need to each year).

The FPCA and instructions on how to submit it for all States and Territories are available at FVAP.gov. Select your State under “Voters Start Here” on the left side of the homepage, then follow the instructions to register and request an absentee ballot. Some States allow you to submit the FPCA by email or fax in addition to regular mail. Don’t forget to sign your printed form before submitting it.
