Specific registration requirements to vote by absentee ballot, and the deadlines to register, vary from state to state. You may use a single form to register and request an absentee ballot: The Federal Post Card Application. This application form is accepted by all states and territories and is postage- paid in the U.S. mail, including the Military Postal System and State Department Pouch mail. Hard copies of the form can be obtained from your state's Voting Assistance Officer or requested directly from the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
Your Voter Registration/Absentee Ballot request form must be completed, printed, signed, dated and mailed directly to your local election official. You can find your local elections office at the Federal Voting Assistance Program website: http://www.fvap.gov/shortcuts/wheresendfpca.html.
