    Default register to vote in US elections

    I just realised that I needed to renew my voter registration for this year's election and had the usual form filling fun completing my Federal Post Card Application.
    If anyone else hasn't done it yet, all the info is on the Federal Voting Assistance Program website https://www.fvap.gov

    I hadn't registered - or voted - in years because, in the past, such actions could be used to demonstrate that one had not actually given up their state residency and, thus, the state could come looking for state income tax. Fortunately those rules have now changes. Especially fortunate because I really and truly wanted to vote against a certain someone. Something I have now done...

    Default US citizens request your absentee ballot

    Hi all - I just wanted to re-up this thread! I requested my absentee ballot via the process on the FVAP website and everything went smoothly. https://www.fvap.gov/citizen-voter received and submitted the absentee request via email. As a voter from North Carolina I was even able to submit my ballot totally on line! Amazing.
