One Response to Military, Americans overseas – how to vote

  1. Victoria Ferauge April 4, 2014 at 12:43 am #

    Thank you very much for this article. I’m an American abroad and I work with the Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AARO).

    Voting rights for military and civilian voters outside the US has been a long hard fight and for too many years it was really difficult. Today it is so much easier.

    AARO met with FVAP last week in Washington and they showed us all the new tools on the website. They have done a wonderful job of making it clearer and easier. I really recommend their site.

    The work to be done now is to get the message out to all those US voters abroad who were discouraged by past experience and to all the new Americans abroad who don’t understand the process of becoming an overseas (not absentee) voter.

    So thank you again for this article and helping to get the word out.
