Message for U.S. Citizens: U.S. General Election is November 3, 2020
July 22, 2020

The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens that there are less than 104 days until the November 3 General Election in the United States.  Be an active voter by taking the necessary steps to vote in the 2020 U.S. elections.

Whether you are a first-time voter or have received ballots and voted absentee in past elections, you must complete a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) each year to ensure you are able to vote in elections as an overseas absentee voter.

To complete a FPCA and request a ballot, please visit www.FVAP.gov and use the online assistant.  The online assistant provides state specific information to help you register to vote and request a ballot.

Beginning August 1, 2020, you can drop off your completed FPCA or completed ballot at the Embassy’s front gate in a sealed envelope, addressed for delivery to the United States via diplomatic pouch free of charge.  No postage is necessary.

In order to facilitate on-time delivery of your ballot, please submit it to us by September 30th.
