Soldiers Army-wide were provided with electronic or paper Federal Post Card Applications (FPCA) in January. Remembering to fill out and return the FPCA is especially important if Soldiers and spouses have changed duty stations. The FPCA alerts local election officials of the move and is a way for Soldiers to register using an absentee ballot. This year there are several gubernatorial races, mayoral elections and even some special elections for Congress as well as local county and city elections. Soldiers serving overseas will be given a second FPCA alert in July. Soldiers who have misplaced their Jan. 15 FPCA notice can get one by visiting the Federal Voting Assistance Program website.
