Voting

Cast your ballot now! 

The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) is offering recurring virtual voting assistance via Zoom every week through the November election 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

Remember, to vote from overseas, you must: 

-Sign your ballot and place it in a sealed envelope.

-Include a return address on the envelope.

-Address the envelope to your local election official.

-Ensure your envelope has the correct U.S. postage.

You must enclose your voted ballot in a sealed envelope addressed to the appropriate local election office in the United States. The U.S. Postal Service will not accept envelopes that are not sealed, that are missing postage, or are not addressed correctly. To find the mailing address of your local election office, see https://www.fvap.gov/guide.

Envelope templates are available for printing on FVAP.gov. Once your ballot is placed inside a sealed envelope with the appropriate U.S. postage, place that envelope in a separate, covering envelope addressed to the U.S. Embassy in Manila. You can then drop off or mail (Phil Post or courier) your ballot to us.
