Message for U.S. Citizens: Celebrate Absentee Voting Week September 27-October 4, 2020

September 23, 2020

Do you have questions about voting in the upcoming U.S. election?  Do you want to learn more about the voter registration process?  Do you know how to submit your voted ballot?

For answers to these and other common voting questions, join us for a Virtual Voting Town Hall on Friday, October 2, at 9 a.m. to celebrate Absentee Voting Week.  The virtual town hall, hosted by U.S. Embassy Manila’s new Consul General, is open to all U.S. citizens in the Philippines.

Consular staff will discuss absentee voting, as well as other items of interest to U.S. citizens, and take your questions about voting.  Please register here for the virtual town hall.  Once registered, we will send you the access information for the town hall via email.  Registration will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, and numbers will be limited to ensure we can answer questions.

For more information about voting, click here and visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program website.  We look forward to seeing you October 2!
