Message for U.S. Citizens: Change in Ballot Collection Procedures at the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa

U.S. citizens who want to mail their ballots to the United States should drop their ballots off at the Embassy entrance located on Avenida República de México in Tegucigalpa, Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Facial masks are required. U.S. citizens will also be required to fill out a sign in sheet with name, passport number, and state of record for voting purposes.

Please deliver your ballot by October 1, 2020 after which time you will need to use a private courier to guarantee on-time delivery.

If you are located outside of Tegucigalpa and would like to mail a ballot to the United States, please send your ballot to the Embassy at the following address by use of a private courier with door-to-door service:

Embajada de Estados Unidos-Tegucigalpa
Avenida La Paz
Tegucigalpa, Honduras
Atención: ACS/Consulado

Postage-paid envelopes are available on fvap.gov at https://www.fvap.gov/eo/overview/materials/forms. Please download the Ballot Return and FWAB postage-paid envelope and place over a physical envelope. Please also fill in the To and From sections on the envelope. Most states also require the actual ballot to be placed in another envelope. Please consider using the Ballot Return and FWAB Security Envelope for this purpose.

All ballots will be postmarked before they are mailed to the United States, which is usually the same date the ballot is received at the Embassy.

If you have not received your ballot and the deadline is near, please visit fvap.gov to download the Federal Write-In Ballot (FWAB) then return it to your local election officials by mail, email, or fax depending on what your state allows.

For more information about how to register to vote, request your absentee ballot, and key deadlines for your particular state, please email us at votetegucigalpa@state.gov to receive a Power Point with step-by-step instructions.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact usahonduras@state.gov or votetegucigalpa@state.gov.

Remember, your vote counts!
