The Federal Voting Assistance Program ensures service members, their eligible family members and overseas citizens have the tools and resources to register to vote and request an absentee ballot regardless of their state of residence. The Voting Assistance Guide is a reference guide for everything you need to know about absentee voting in all 50 states, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
Select your state on the VAG website to find your local election office’s contact information.
Voting Election Forms are also available.
The Militaryand Family Readiness Center is home to the Scott Air Force Base Installation Voting Assistance Office. Units have assigned unit voting assistance officers to assist members with their voting needs.
The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act protects the rights of absent service members, members of the Merchant Marines, the Public Health Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and their voting-age dependents regardless of where they are stationed.
The Federal Voting Assistance Program website provides UOCAVA-eligible voters a user-friendly tool to register to vote and to request an absentee ballot. Users simply click on their state of legal residence to obtain the state’s specific voting instructions and requirements. Many states now allow citizens to register to vote and to vote by absentee ballot by mail, email or fax.
The Federal Voting Assistance Program website helps voters identify their state’s deadlines for registering and submitting absentee ballots. The website also provides information for separating active-duty members and military spouses. Separating service members and their families are encouraged to complete a National Voter Registration Form to register as a civilian.
Voters are encouraged to update their contact information annually via the Federal Post Card Application available on the website. The information provided on the FPCA helps election officials to determine whether state-specific voter registration requirements are met, which materials voters need and where to send ballots. Voters should follow up with their election officials or the IVAO to ensure their FPCAs are received. Contact information is listed by state and county on the website. The FPCA should be completed each year by January 15.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a president and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.”
Exercise your right to vote. For further voting assistance, please contact the IVAO at the M&FRC 618-256-8668.
