News Briefs July 4, 2014

Ongoing

Armed forces Voters week is June 30 to July 7. During this week, commanders are encouraged to intensify efforts to contact assigned personnel, ensure they are informed of the requirements for voting, and are provided necessary information regarding voting resources. The majority of Soldiers vote via absentee ballot; therefore, it is necessary to account for postal transit time from here to their local election office. Adhering to the ballot mailing deadline guidance provides the best opportunity for each absentee ballot to be counted during an election. Visit at www.fvap.gov, select your state and click on the online assistance tab to get started on voting in your state. Upcoming primary elections: Alabama, July 15; North Carolina, July 15; Georgia, July 22. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact Monroe Ili, installation voting assistance officer, at 380-3498 or room 114, building 106.
