If you are already a registered voter in your state and only need to "request a ballot", your deadline is likely extended. Deadlines are listed in the Election Dates and Deadlines directory on this website.
Whether you are registering to vote, or requesting a ballot - you must still complete and send in the same registration/ballot request form. You can complete this form by going to the Register to Vote / Absentee Ballot page on our website.
Never assume your ballot will arrive without refiling! Voters should submit a voter registration application/absentee ballot request each year and whenever your overseas address or other personal information changes to keep your registration current.
