July 4th Voting Message

Celebrate democracy this 4th of July by taking the necessary steps to vote in the 2020 U.S. elections!
 
In order to vote in the November 2020 elections, all overseas U.S. citizens need to have completed a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) in 2020.  Whether you are a first-time voter or have already received ballots and voted absentee in past elections, you must complete an FPCA each year to participate in elections as an overseas absentee voter.
Registering to Vote and submitting a ballot is fast, easy, and can be done from anywhere in the world! Follow a few simple steps to vote in the 2020 U.S. elections:
1.     Register to vote:  Start by confirming your voter registration with your state.  Some states require absentee voters to register annually, so you may need to re-register.  Go to FVAP.gov to connect to your state’s voter portal to register to vote, request a ballot, and more.
 
2.  Request Your Ballot: Most states provide the option to request ballots through their state election portals, which you can easily access via FVAP.gov.  You can also choose to complete a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The completion of the FPCA allows you to request absentee ballots for all elections for federal offices (President, U.S. Senate, and U.S. House of Representatives), including primaries and special elections, during the calendar year in which it is submitted.  FPCA forms that are correctly filled out and include a signature and date are accepted by all local election officials in every U.S. state and territory.  FVAP’s easy online assistant can assist you with completing the FPCA. 

Whether you request your ballot through your state’s portal or the FPCA, we encourage you to select the option to receive your ballot electronically (by email, internet download, or fax) when available.  This is the fastest way to get your ballot and ensures you have it in time to return a completed form before your state’s deadline.
 
3.  Receive and Complete Your Ballot:  States are required to send out ballots 45 days before a regular election for federal office, and states generally send out ballots at least 30 days before primary elections.  Most states allow you to confirm your ballot delivery online.
 
4.     Return Your Completed, Signed Ballot:  Some states allow you to return your completed ballot electronically.  If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you can do so through international mail, professional courier service, or through the U.S. Consulate in Florence.  The diplomatic pouch provides free mail service from embassies and consulates to a U.S. sorting facility.  You will need to place your ballots in postage-paid return envelopes or in envelopes bearing sufficient U.S. postage in order for them to be delivered to the proper local election authorities once received by the U.S. sorting facility (NOTE: postage from Italy to the United States is not required using this method).
 
If you are sending your ballot through the U.S. Consulate in Florence, ballots can be dropped off in a ballot box maintained outside of the main entrance at Lungarno Vespucci, 38 from 9:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday (excluding these holidays).  Be prepared to present your U.S. passport during your visit.  Please note that it can take more than three weeks for mail to reach its destination if sent through the Consulate.  Ballots will be received and forwarded whenever submitted but you may want to consider using a courier service if submitting your ballot close to or after the stated delivery time for pouch mail.
Researching the Candidates and Issues:  Online Resources.  Go to the FVAP links page for helpful resources to aid your research of candidates and issues. Non-partisan information about candidates, their voting records, and their positions on issues are widely available and easy to obtain online. You can also read national and hometown newspapers online, or search the internet to locate articles and information. For information about election dates and deadlines, subscribe to FVAP's Voting Alerts (vote@fvap.gov). FVAP also shares Voting Alerts via Facebook (@DODFVAP), Twitter (@FVAP), and Instagram (@fvapgov).
Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program's (FVAP) website, FVAP.gov.  If you have any questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact U.S. Consulate Florence’s Voting Assistance Officer at USCitizensFlorence@state.gov.
Remember, your vote counts!

Message to U.S. Citizens: FVAP Voting Resources
 
U.S. Embassy Rome, Italy – May 8, 2020
 
The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) is aware of the impact of COVID-19 on U.S. citizens abroad, Service members, and their eligible family members, when voting absentee during the remainder of the 2020 election cycle.
 
FVAP is in communication with state election offices, the Military Postal Service Agency, and other federal agencies to bring you up-to-date information on state election date changes and mailing cycles.  Due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic occurring around the globe, we recommend that you contact your local post offices regarding possible delivery delays before mailing your voted ballot.
 
Here are some important things to remember:
1.     Submitting your Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) early is the best way to help ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
2.     Using the FPCA provides overseas citizens with an option to receive balloting materials electronically.
3.     Using the FPCA early grants voters the ability to use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) as a backup ballot, if needed.
 
Actions to Take:
•        Check the ballot return options in your state.
•        Find your state’s primary election dates.
•        Use our online assistant to complete your FPCA.
•        Use our online assistant to complete your FWAB.
•        Enroll in Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and Messages from the U.S. Mission to Italy.

If you have an immediate need to travel and have a confirmed flight to the United States, please contact U.S. Embassy Rome or your local consulate and request an emergency passport appointment.

International commercial flight options currently exist in Italy.
