Voting

Receiving Your Ballot: Some states allow you to receive your ballot by email or fax while others do not.  Please visit https://www.fvap.gov/covid-19 to view a graphic showing which states allow voting by fax or email.  If your state requires you to receive paper voting forms or ballots from local election officials by mail, you can do so through private courier service in Honduras.

Returning Your Completed, Signed Ballot: Some states allow you to return your completed ballot electronically and others do not.  If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you can do so via Embassy drop off or private courier service. Submitted ballots must be sealed.

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 follow your state specific instructions. Consider using the Ballot Return and FWAB Security Envelope for this purpose.

Never received your ballot?  If you registered to vote and requested an absentee ballot prior to your state’s registration deadline, but have not yet received your ballot, complete and return a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot to ensure your vote reaches election officials by your state’s deadline.  Return it by mail, email, or fax depending on what your state allows.  If your regular ballot arrives later, complete and return it as well.  Your Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot will only be counted if your regular ballot does not reach local election officials by your state’s deadline.  Your vote will not be counted twice.

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.

Remember, your vote counts!
