Effective Sept. 1, 2012, through Nov. 30, 2012, customers can mail their Casted Absentee Ballots back to the United States for free using express mail military service. To receive this free service, customers must present absentee ballots at a post office finance window to receive a copy of the express mail 11-DoD label. The express mail label includes a tracking number customers can use to track the status of ballots on the Postal Service website. This service is only available to citizens who are casting votes by absentee ballot and cannot be used for other voting material mailings. All American citizens overseas, regardless of status, are authorized to use this free service and the military postal system to mail absentee ballots at any military post office.
