Americans reminded to sign up for a vote
US citizens living overseas who want to vote in the mid-term elections on November 6 are advised to register in early August to ensure their vote.
The registration deadline is imminent for the vote in which all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested.
A total 39 state and territorial governorships and numerous state and local elections will also take place.
The Federal Voting Assistance Program recommends using the Federal Post Card Application, available at FVAP.gov, to register and request an absentee ballot to ensure voters can take part.
On the site, eligible voters can find their state’s specific registration and ballot request deadlines, as well as information on completing their application, which is accepted by all states and territories.
