Be Like Jeff!

Here's a picture of Colorado voter Jeff Knezovich casting his absentee ballot right here in London.

Have you voted yet? If not, why not? TODAY is election day for Americans living abroad. Get your state ballots or your Federal Write in Absentee Ballots (FWAB) in the post right now to be sure they are there on November 4. You can download a FWAB from if you don't have you state ballot yet.
Important voting tips:
  1. If you receive your state ballot after you send your FWAB, you can still vote your state ballot. The state will then discard your FWAB and count your state ballot instead. (So vote the FWAB today, to be safe.)
  2. The FWAB must be send from overseas to be valid - so if you are planning a trip to the states, vote your FWAB before you go (like, now would be good...).
  3. Although some states allow absentee ballots to be counted even if they arrive a few days after election day, we would advise you to plan on getting your ballot there well in advance of November 4th to avoid any opportunity for confusion. (That means, send it now.)
