Are you a U.S. citizen? Are you interested in voting in the 2020 general election, Republican primary, or Democratic primary? Then here is some information to get you started.
As a U.S. citizen, you have the opportunity to vote from anywhere in the world. In recent years that process is easier than ever thanks to VoteFromAbroad.org They will help you request a ballot from wherever your last address in the U.S. was. While each state has a different process, the site will walk you through the process and provide all the information you need. However, in most cases you are still likely to be responsible for receiving and sending your ballot through the mail and the costs involved. Since sending mail round-trip from the U.S. and back is often a lengthy process it's best to get started with your registration now.
If you are interested in voting in the Republican primary it may not be too late for you. Your only option is to request a ballot from the state you are registered in. Deadlines for that option are passing fast though, and you may not be able to vote this way in every state. You may also find information at Republicans Overseas.
You have two options if you are interested in voting in the Democratic primary.
The first option is to vote by email in the Democrats Abroad global primary starting on February 18th. You can register for that at DemocratsAbroad.org. This an option even if you are registered as an independent or Republican in your home state, and it won't affect your registration status back home.
Your second option is to vote in your state's primary, but the same limitations that apply to the Republican primary above will also apply to you. And be aware that you can not vote in both your state primary and the Democratic global primary.
Thank you for considering your options this election season. No matter the outcome stay safe, stay healthy, and let freedom ring.© Copyright 2005-2020 GoKunming.com all rights reserved. This material may not be republished, rewritten or redistributed without permission.
