Voters in the following states (who have not yet registered and/or requested their ballots) must ensure that their FPCAs are sent in NOW!
Oct. 4 – Illinois, Nevada, South Carolina
Oct. 5 – Alaska, Mississippi
Oct. 6 – Colorado, DC, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming
Oct. 8 – Missouri
Oct. 10 – Idaho, New York
All of these states except for NY and WY will accept faxed FPCAs.
Please use the following US fax number: +1-703-693-5527 (the toll free numbers in many parts of the world do not work). All faxes are received in Virginia by the Federal Voting Assistance Program. The FVAP will log in the date and time that the fax was received and then forward it on to your local election official.
For deadline purposes, your form is deemed received when it arrives on the FVAP’s fax machine, but you still must MAIL the original form to your local election official.
Exceptions: NY and WY do NOT accept faxes. The only way to meet the deadlines for NY and WY is to ensure that your original FPCA arrives in the local election office by mail no later than the deadline. (NY and WY will also accept FPCAs by commercial courier.) NOTE: FPCAs need NOT carry a foreign postmark!
The other states have later registration deadlines.
Check them here: http://democratsabroad.org/registration_dates and watch for our forthcoming Voter Alerts.
