The Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) should only be used in the following specific scenario:

  • You have already submitted an FPCA
  • You have not yet received your ballot
  • You are submitting the FWAB from a location outside the United States

If you receive your requested ballot after submitting the FWAB, please attempt to vote it and return it by the deadline. This ensures you have the opportunity to vote on all the races and questions on your ballot. If we receive both by the deadline, we will count the full ballot and not the FWAB. If we do not receive your full ballot, your FWAB will be counted.
