The Federal Voting Assistance Program is holding virtual "Office Hours" to help overseas voters with any questions they may have.
The weekly virtual events are being held via Zoom, hosted by FVAP Voting Assistant Ambassadors. In the UK, that’s Kayla Paulson. US Citizens can join Kayla from 12-1pm on Thursdays to #AskFVAP any questions that they may have about requesting and returning their absentee ballot. You can hop on the Zoom call at any time during the hour.
The Zoom details are: Zoom Link: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/9750035128?pwd=TFZnTHd2dkR6YVhxbWNlcVB2Vy9BUT09 Meeting ID: 975 003 5128 Passcode: 28Xx2X
The remaining FVAP Office Hours in the UK will be on Thursday October 22nd and Thursday October 29th from 12-1pm. If you share the information, you can use the hashtag #AskFVAP.
Voters can also send questions to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Similarly, voters can reach FVAP Voting Assistance Ambassador Kayla on FVAP London Facebook and Twitter pages to find overseas voting updates and ask questions.
FVAP also encourages voters to visit its COVID-19 page to find key resources, election updates and helpful information: fvap.gov/covid-19
As well as the Office Hours sessions, the FVAP has this advice:
If you requested an absentee ballot but never received it, send in a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) as a “back up” ballot today! fvap.gov/fwab
If your state only accepts the ballot by fax or mail then you can email your ballot materials to email@example.com and we will fax your ballot for you. You will need to include the voter transmission cover sheet for fax and email which is available at FVAP.gov : https://www.fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Forms/coversheet.pdf
