Absentee Voting Week

Absentee Voting Week is scheduled to take place here from Sept.27 to Oct.4.

"The purpose of Absentee Voting Week is to help people register and receive their ballots in time," said said Maj. Jamal Williams, 36th Wing Force Support Squadron operations officer and this year's installation voting assistance officer. "Furthermore, those who have not received their ballots in the mail can receive a new ballot in order to place their vote in time."

It is recommended that members of Team Andersen fill out their ballots and mail them by Oct.16 so they arrive to their designated board of elections office in time.
The voters assistance office will have a booth set up in front of the Base Exchange every day during absentee voting week and will also make appearances at the dining facility and Coral Reef Fitness center.

Those who have not registered to vote can do so at www. fvap.gov or register using an absentee ballot that comes attached with a registration form.


More than half the states post absentee ballots online for military and overseas voters. Additionally, voters from all 55 states and territories can use the FVAP online Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot automated assistant to vote for at least all federal candidates.
"Voting is a right that you defend," said Major Williams. "It's a privilege and a right for you to determine the future of the country that you fight for."
