Vote Absentee in the 2016 Elections

With Election Day on November 8, time is running short to request an absentee ballot from your state of residence if you have not already done so. It can take a while for your request to reach local election officials in the United States and for them to process your request, so don’t wait until the last minute. More information, including deadlines, is available at, the website of the Federal Voting Assistance Program. You can also drop your completed ballots off at the U.S. Embassy. Please remember that the U.S. Embassy in Pristina is not a polling place, and there will be no in-person voting available on Election Day.

If you don’t receive your absentee ballot by mid-October, you may wish to instead submit a Federal Write-In Ballot (or “FWAB”), which can be printed from the FVAP website. If you submit a FWAB and then receive your state ballot, go ahead and submit the state ballot as well, and if local officials receive both, they’ll simply disregard your FWAB.
