Important Information for Overseas Voters
Please review the U.S. State Department’s guidance on returning ballots from overseas, particularly in nations with interrupted or canceled international mail service.
- Local mail: if you have reliable mail service to the U.S., put your ballot in the mail with appropriate international postage.
- U.S. Embassy Diplomatic pouch: You can drop off your completed ballot at the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. It must be addressed to your local election official and have sufficient U.S. postage or be in a postage-paid envelope (available on the FVAP website). Contact the embassy voting assistance officer or visit the embassy’s website for specific instructions.
- Express courier service: If time is short or local mail unreliable, you can use professional courier services such as FedEx, DHL, or UPS at your own expense. Note: FedEx does not deliver to P.O. boxes.
