There’s no time like the present to REGISTER TO VOTE!

Once again this year, thanks to Overseas Vote Foundation, military and overseas voters can register to vote and request their ballots using the latest secure and user-friendly technology and benefiting from access to OVF’s continuously updated state-specific voter information.  OVF has, since 2007, hosted the only non-partisan, non-governmental voter registration website and in 2014, it’s better than ever.

Voters in the equivalent of the 26th state (6.32 million overseas Americans, according to the State Department) can go straight to to:

  1. register to vote and request an absentee ballot
  2. request an emergency Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot if their own ballot arrives late
  3. get state-specific information about eligibility and deadlines
  4. find full contact details for their own election official

ACA proposal to resolve non-compliance issues for overseas Americans

AARO’s partner organization ACA (American Citizens Abroad) has written to the Treasury Department and the IRS with a simple, clear and eminently sensible proposal to help these Americans who, far from being tax evaders, are, in the main, eager to correct their situation. We applaud their initiative and support their proposal, the full text of which can be found here.
