Armed Forces Voters Week & Overseas Citizens Voters Week (30 June-7 July 2014)

Since the 4th of July is tomorrow, I thought it would be a good reminder to register to vote.  It is especially important for those families overseas, whether due to military orders or not.  Even those families stateside should double check that we are registered to vote. 

I’m kind of glad I did because even though I had registered with the DMV here…my prior state said I was registered there due to lost mail form (or forgot to mail form..whoops..).  So I had to re-send everything to re-register…never received my voter card either (our state sends a voter card with district information on it,etc).

Since we are near election time, knowing where to get information in order to register to vote is important.

If you have changed your address recently:

You need to complete a new Federal Post Card Application (FCPA) at least 90 days prior to the election you want to vote in.

 You can find a new FCPA here:

·   A digital PDF can be found online at, and there is an automated tool to walk you through completing it.

·   Hardcopies of the form are available at all military installations and U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide.
