Candidate Finder ButtonSince 2006, we've provided a suite of voting services to help you get your ballot wherever you are in the world and return your ballot on time. This year, we've added a new tool, the OVF Candidate Finder, to help with the most important part: deciding about the names on your ballot.

Our philosophy is to keep our voting registration services strictly nonpartisan: we help and encourage everyone to vote without worrying about for whom they vote. Picking candidates, however, is still part of the process of casting a ballot. For voters who live overseas -- far from media coverage of local and even Congressional races -- online support for the research phase of the voting process is especially important.

That's why we've added the OVF Candidate Finder to our suite of nonpartisan voter services.

Candidate List PageWhat does it do?

After you type in your voting address, it will:

  • Identify your Congressional District
  • Identify Congressional candidates in your district and their party affiliations
  • Show biographical details for individual Congressional candidates

Using data provided by nonpartisan, nonprofit Project Vote Smart, it provides the entire list of candidates for Senate and House of Representatives races.

Candidate Detail PageWe encourage you to find out more about individual candidates before making your final choice. But the OVF Candidate Finder provides an instant snapshot of the races in your district right there on the same site where you register and request a ballot.

Combine this with our Vote-Print-Mail service that prints out an "emergency" ballot for your Congressional district and Overseas Vote Foundation now provides a one-stop-shop of voting services.



Help us share the OVF Candidate Finder with the 6 million+ Americans living overseas.
