Secretary of State
If you will be temporarily outside the United States, make arrangements with your local Clerk to obtain an absentee ballot before you leave or to have the ballot mailed to you overseas.
If you are already outside of the United States you may use the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA) form to register to vote and request absent voter ballots. The FPCA forms are distributed through U.S. embassies and military bases and may be found at www.fvap.gov
