FVAP recommends that all U.S. citizens overseas send in a FPCA every January to ensure receipt of absentee ballots for all federal elections in 2018. Now is the time to update your mailing address and absentee ballot request information to reflect any changes since the 2016 general election.

To register and request your ballots, complete the FPCA using the online assistant (https://www.fvap.gov/fpca-privacy-notice). You may also use the fillable PDF (fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Forms/fpca.pdf) or pick up a hardcopy version from a Voting Assistance Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Juba.

Are you unable to drop off your registration or ballot at the U.S. Embassy during business hours?  Consular staff will be at Kerbino’s restaurant in Juba this Sunday, March 18, from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.  Information will be available on how to register to vote and you may drop off your sealed and U.S. domestic-postage paid voter registration cards or ballots.  Kerbino’s is located at the UAP Equatoria Tower, near Konyo-Konyo market.

Follow the U.S. Embassy in Juba on Facebook and Twitter to keep up-to-date on voter assistance events and other information.
