If you will be studying abroad during an election, you can register to vote as an Overseas Citizen Voter on the U.S. Vote website. To do so, go to Register to Vote / Absentee Ballot and choose the Overseas type of voting.
A few guidelines as you complete your Overseas Vote Registration request…
Once your form is completed you may download, print, sign, and send your form to the Election Office Address provided with your document and instructions. Note that the form must be submitted by you. Our system does not send any documents in your name - only you can submit your own voting documents to your election office.
To see the various ways that you can submit documents to your election office, please go to our State Voting Requirements page. Once there, submit your state and click on the “Voter Materials Transmission Options” tab for further information.
If you do not get your ballot in time, you can then file the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot here at https://www.usvotefoundation.org/vote/FwabStart.htm .
