Military and Overseas Voters

The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) created special provisions for absent uniformed services and overseas citizens to vote by mail in primary, general, and special elections; and to allow these individuals to use a federal write-in absentee ballot (FWAB) in the general election.

Who are UOCAVA Voters?

  • Members of the United States Uniformed Services and the merchant marines and their family members
  • United States citizens residing outside of the United States

Registering to Vote

All military and overseas voters must be registered to vote in order to obtain a ballot. UOCAVA voters can register by completing a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The completed FPCA must then be received by or postmarked to the Clerk’s Office no later than 30 days prior to an election to be added to the voter rolls.
