The U.S. has made it easy. Just go to the website for the Federal Voting Assistance Program, located at http://www.fvap.gov/index.html. Click the “Get Started” button under “I am a citizen living outside the U.S.” Next, you will select your state. On the following screen, you will click the “Get Started” button under “Register to Vote and/or Request Ballot.” Then follow the prompts to use FVAP’s automated assistant to complete and print your voter registration/ballot request form. You can even print out the mailing address directly onto your own envelope.
Drop the request form in the mail. We heard back about three weeks after mailing our forms from our local Costa Rican post office.
Your vote counts, no matter where you live!
