Message for U.S. Citizens: Voting in 2024 U.S. Federal Elections


Your vote counts!  All states are required to count every absentee ballot that is valid and reaches local election officials by the absentee ballot receipt deadline.

You must complete a new Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) this year to ensure you receive your ballot for the 2024 elections.  Submitting the FPCA allows you to request absentee ballots for all elections for federal offices, including primaries and special elections.

You can complete the FPCA online at  The online voting assistant will ask you questions specific to your state.  The website will also advise ballot request and return deadlines, which are different for each state and territory.
