Do all enlisted military voters and their families qualify to vote as uniformed absentee voters under the protections of the UOCAVA voting law?

  • Only active-duty members of one of the U.S. uniformed services who are stationed away from their home voting district at the time of the election can use the UOCAVA voting program. 

  • The uniformed services are the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Space Force and Coast Guard, as well as the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps. 

  • Members of the U.S. flag Merchant Marine also qualify as absent uniformed services voters, as do spouses and voting-age family members of uniformed service members and Merchant Marine members, if they are accompanying the service member. 

  • All references to “overseas” voting in this document and throughout this website also include qualified military voters and their family members.
