There are 4.4 million U.S. citizens abroad, but only 3.4% of them voted in the 2022 General Election. Time to act! According to the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) 2022 Post-Election Report to Congress and its “Overseas Citizen Population Analysis,” the U.S. citizens’ population abroad has increased by 1.3m (or 42%) since 2010 and is now 4.4m[1]. Although all eligible U.S. citizens carry their right to vote no matter where they are on the election day, few take advantage of this opportunity to participate in the U.S. elections.

The Ethicist column[i] in The New York Times, along with the discussions it sparked regarding the voting rights of Americans living abroad, has prompted me to share my perspective gained from two decades of involvement with this issue. What the Ethicist fails to note is that overseas votes can make a significant difference, especially when it comes to elections determined by razor-thin margins, which we continue to see across the nation. The ability of U.S. citizens abroad to influence U.S. policy should not be underestimated.
