2016 Absent Uniformed-Service and Overseas Citizens Eligible to Use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB)
This is an official notice of an election to be conducted in the Commonwealth of Virginia on November 8, 2016. If you are an absent military or overseas citizen eligible to vote in state and local elections, you may register to vote and request a regular absentee ballot for upcoming elections online using the Department of Elections voter registration portal. Please note that a driver’s license or identification card issued by the Virginia DMV is required to complete the process paperlessly. If you do not have a DMV-issued ID, you may also apply by using the federal postcard application (FPCA), available at www.fvap.gov. You can submit your FPCA by scanned email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to (804) 371-0194. Detailed instructions are provided in the Virginia Voting Assistance Guide, available at www.fvap.gov. FPCA’s are valid for all elections in the calendar year in which they are submitted and must be renewed annually.
If you do not receive your state ballot in time, you may vote using a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), available at www.fvap.gov. You can identify all of the federal, state, local offices and, if applicable, ballot measures that, as of this date, are expected to be on the ballot by visiting the Citizen Portal or visit our Candidate List page to see a full list of candidates.
