Military and Overseas Voting

The Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) is the universal form for registration and absentee ballot requests. Applications may be submitted to your county of permanent residence up to 180 days before a primary or election in which a federal candidate appears on the ballot. Complete the FPCA online, or the FPCA form can be printed and mailed in.

The Elections Office will mail the ballots approximately 45 days before an election day. Along with your absentee ballot, you will also receive a State Write-In Ballot (SWAB) to be used in case of a runoff election (you will not receive another ballot for a runoff election). The ballots will be mailed to the address you give on your application. If the address listed on your application changes due to reassignment or if you return to the States, you must update your voter registration by contacting your county election office.

Please mail your completed absentee ballot to the Muscogee County Election & Registration Office (the mailing address is available at the bottom of this web page). Absentee ballots will be accepted up to 3 days after an election if postmarked by Election Day.

For additional help with military and overseas voting, visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program's website.
