There's still time to vote absentee!

By MyCG Staff

If you haven’t requested or received your absentee ballot you may still be able to vote!

Some states (check here) are still accepting requests to register and request a ballot. You can use the FVAP Assistant to do this, or pick up a hard copy from your Voting Assistance Officer.

With 30 days or less to go until Election Day, those who haven’t yet received their absentee ballot should fill out the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). It works like a backup ballot. If your official absentee ballot arrives after sending in the FWAB, fill out and send in the official ballot too. Only one will be counted.

For questions or assistance please visit or contact your unit’s Voting Assistance Officer. If you are unable to obtain information locally, contact Ms. Keirsten Current.
