truth meter pointing away from myths toward facts
The assumptions made about the rules of overseas voting are so often just plain wrong. We call them “Overseas Voting Myths.” They are myths and misconceptions that are actually fabricated barriers to voting. At Overseas Vote and our parent, U.S. Vote Foundation, our legacy is overseas and military voting. We often remark on this tendency of voters to use these misconceptions to keep themselves from voting. Overseas voting is challenging enough without creating even more imaginary problems!

We are pleased to announce a solution to the printing requirement in the overseas and military voter registration absentee ballot request process. For all states that allow signed registration and ballot request forms to be delivered by email, we have implemented new technology. The Photo-Sign-Email functionality allows voters to apply a photo of their handwritten signature to a ballot request online and directly email it to their election office through our system.

As the Presidential Primary Elections come to a conclusion and the nominees for each party are decided, you may wonder, how can a person qualify to be a U.S. President? Such a relevant and timely question deserves an answer! It is your right as a U.S. citizen living abroad to vote in Federal Elections wherever you presently reside.

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.
