Register to Vote

As a uniformed service member or citizen living overseas, you may register to vote using the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA).  The FPCA can be found at http://www.fvap.gov/.  Additionally, you may contact your city/town clerk to receive a FPCA by mail, e-mail, or fax. 

When you submit your FPCA, it will be processed for an election if it is received on the day before the election.

A Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) received in 2019 is valid for all subsequent state and municipal elections throughout 2019 and the Presidential Primary, even if the Presidential Primary is held in 2020.

Request Absentee Ballot

The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) is treated as a ballot if there is a valid request (FPCA) for an absentee ballot on file.  The registration information that comes with the FWAB can be treated to complete a voter registration if it is properly completed.  If there is a signature on a voter registration document from the voter on file, the voter information can be used to complete the registration process and the FWAB can be counted as a ballot.  If there is no voter signature on a previous voter registration application, the FWAB cannot be counted as a ballot, even if the voter registration material with the FWAB is completed.  RSA 657:10-b657:12;  657:23

The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) can be processed for counting if it is received through the U.S. mail or commercial carrier by 5:00 PM on an election day.  RSA 657:22
