The Army Voting Assistance Program oversees the more than 3,000 voting assistance officers Army-wide who are dedicated to ensuring Soldiers everywhere have the tools and information they need to be able to vote. Soldiers who want to vote in November should act now. The way to do that is by seeking out a unit voting assistance officer and then filling out a Federal Post Card Application. Soldiers can also download the form from the Federal Voting Assistance Program website. The FVAP.Gov website provides deadlines for registering to vote, requesting a ballot, and mailing a ballot. Each state has different requirements. For more information, contact your voting assistance officer where you are stationed.
