Message for U.S. Citizens:  Federal Voting Assistance Program Town Halls

October 16, 2020


The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) is offering recurring virtual voting assistance via Zoom every week to provide direct support to overseas citizens. Voters can participate in any of the meetings and speak with an FVAP Voting Ambassador who can answer questions about absentee voting, including inquiries about the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) and Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) forms. Voters can also use the chat function to submit questions for the FVAP representatives. None of these sessions will be recorded nor will they be uploaded to social media. These office hours are intended to support voters who are not able to call during FVAP’s regular business hours.

The sessions will be held:

Every Thursday at 9:00 AM Manila time

FVAP Representative: Deana
