Register and Request Your Absentee Ballot Now for these Upcoming Elections:

The following states have elections for federal office in the next 90 days:

January 11, 2022: Florida Special General Election in U.S. Congressional District 20*

March 1, 2022: Texas Primary Election**

*The State of Florida will conduct a special general election on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, to fill a vacancy for the 20th Congressional District, which includes parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties. Service members, eligible family members, and overseas citizens can register to vote up until December 13, 2021. Voters can use the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register to vote, request a ballot, and update any contact information by using the completion tool available at fvap.gov/FPCA or by using the fillable PDF version. After completing the FPCA, voters must print it, sign it, and send it to their election office in Florida. If using the FPCA to register for the first time, voters must mail the FPCA to their election office.

Florida voters in the 20th Congressional District who are already registered and want to receive a mailed ballot must send in the FPCA as a ballot request by January 1, 2022. Registered voters who prefer to receive their ballot by email or fax can request their ballot up until Election Day. Registered voters can send their completed, signed FPCA directly to their election office by email, mail, or fax.

Florida voters in the 20th Congressional District must return their voted absentee ballot by MAIL or FAX (fax only allowed if located overseas) and postmarked by January 11, 2022. Detailed instructions and county contact information are available at fvap.gov/florida. Voters can verify the status of their voting materials by contacting their election office directly.

**The State of Texas will conduct a primary election for U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. Service members, eligible family members, and overseas citizens can register to vote between January 1 and February 9, 2022. Voters can use the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register to vote, request a ballot, and update any contact information by using the completion tool available at fvap.gov/FPCA or by using the fillable PDF version.

Texas voters who are already registered and want to receive a ballot must send in the FPCA as a ballot request between January 1 and February 18, 2022.

After completing the FPCA, voters must sign and send it to their county early voting clerk in Texas, by mail, email, or fax. If submitting the FPCA by fax, the faxed FPCA must be followed with a hardcopy mailed FPCA that must be received by the early voting clerk by the fourth business day after the fax. Emailed FPCAs do not require a follow-up mailed hardcopy FPCA, but must include the “Transmission Cover Sheet”.

Voters must return their voted absentee ballot by mail or fax (fax only if you are located in a hostile fire area). For Uniformed Service members or eligible family members, the ballot must be mailed by March 1, 2022. For overseas citizens the ballot must be postmarked by March 1, 2022.

Detailed instructions and county contact information are available at fvap.gov/texas. Voters can verify the status of their voting materials by contacting their election office directly.
