*The State of Florida will conduct a special primary election on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, to fill a vacancy for the 20th Congressional District, which includes parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties. Registered Florida voters who prefer to receive their ballot by email or fax can request their ballot up until Election Day. They can use the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) as a ballot request at fvap.gov/FPCA or by using the fillable PDF version. Voters must return their voted absentee ballot by MAIL or FAX (fax only allowed if located overseas) and postmarked by 7PM, November 2, 2021. Detailed instructions and county contact information are available at fvap.gov/florida.

** The State of Ohio will conduct two special general elections on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, to fill vacancies in the 11th Congressional District, which includes parts of Cuyahoga and Summit counties and the 15th Congressional district, which includes all of Clinton, Fairfield, Hocking, Madison, Morgan, Perry, Pickaway, and Vinton counties and parts of: Athens, Fayette, Franklin, and Ross counties. Ohio voters who are already registered to vote can use the FPCA to request their absentee ballot up until 12PM on October 30, 2021. Voters must return their voted absentee ballot by MAIL before 12:01 AM, November 2, 2021. Detailed instructions and county contact information are available at fvap.gov/ohio.

Voters from both states can verify the status of their voting materials by contacting their election office directly.

Voters who do not receive their requested state absentee ballot in time to return it by the ballot return deadline, can send the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) to their election office as a backup ballot. If the state absentee ballot arrives after sending in the FWAB, the voter may complete and submit the official ballot, too. Only one ballot will be counted.

FVAP offers an email-to-fax forwarding service for voters from states that allow voted ballots to be faxed, but do not allow email return of voted ballots. Voters who do not have access to a fax machine can email their completed ballot to fax@FVAP.gov and FVAP will forward the ballot as a fax to the appropriate election office.

Additional Information for non-UOCAVA voters: If you are a uniformed service member and you are currently stationed in the same location as your voting address, you may visit vote.gov to register to vote and request information from your local election office to register and vote locally.

The Department of Defense is required to send this email notification starting 90 days before each election for federal office. This information is current as of October 25, 2021. As updates may occur, please check the election calendars and state guidelines at FVAP.gov for real time information.
