Message for U.S. Citizens:  Virtual Voting Town Hall
October 2, 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?

Due to popular demand, please join us for a second Virtual Voting Town Hall on Wednesday October 7, at 9 a.m.  The virtual town hall, hosted by U.S. Embassy Manila’s new American Citizen Services chief, is open to all U.S. citizens in the Philippines.

Consular staff will discuss absentee voting and take your questions about voting from abroad.  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 7!
