Local election officials are no longer required to notify you affirmatively that your registration and absentee ballot request has been received and that you will be mailed a ballot in September.

You can check with your state to make sure you are on the electoral rolls.

The following states allow you to find your registration status on-line: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

If your state does not appear on the above list, you can get the contact information for your local election officials at:
Project Vote Smart - Local Election Offices (http://www.vote-smart.org/voter_county_election_offices.php) by selecting your state and then the local jurisdiction from the drop-down menus. Email or call your election official directly to find out if you are on the rolls.

If you are not on the electoral roll or if you cannot contact your local election official, please let us know and we will provide additional help and guidance.

Let us know if you have other questions. Thank you for exercising your right to vote. Please let others know they have the right to vote from abroad and that all they need to do is go to VoteFromAbroad.org : Home (http://www.VoteFromAbroad.org).
