The requirements for mailing your FWAB are:
- It must have an overseas, non-U.S. postmark.
- The postmark must show that the mailing date was on or before Election Day.
- It must include "USA" in the election office address.
Uniformed Services Members: the Military Postal Service provides free USPS Express Mail ballot return from every military installation. This is a safe and efficient ballot return program for all uniformed service members.
Do not rely on the US Embassy or Consulate to send your ballot back in time. They are not a mailing organization. There may be some assistance through American Citizen Services, however, this varies depending on which country you are in. It is best to send your FWAB from a post office if you are sure you have enough time for mail delivery.
