Armed Forces Voter Week: Encouraging Airmen to vote

56th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

The Federal Voting Assistance Program encourages military personnel, their eligible family members and overseas citizens to submit a new federal post card application every January to ensure they can participate in upcoming federal elections.

The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act states that any service member, eligible family member or overseas citizen may be eligible to vote absentee. The FPCA, SF-76, allows you to apply to register to vote, request an absentee ballot or update your contact information with your local election office. The FPCA is the primary method of communication between you and your election official. The information provided on this form is all the local election office has to determine if you meet the state voter registration requirements, which election materials to send you and where and how to send you a ballot.

FVAP.gov offers an online assistant to walk you through completion of the form, and provides a blank fillable PDF. Hardcopies of the form are also available at embassies, consulates and military bases around the world.

Once completed, do not forget to print and sign the form before submitting it to your local election office. Contact information can be found at FVAP.gov. Don’t forget to follow up with your election official to ensure your registration was received.

Voting is a personal choice, but if you want to vote, voting assistance is available to help provide you with the tools and resources you need to successfully vote absentee.
