Are you an U.S. citizen voting overseas? The voting process has changed, but your vote still counts. Learn how to request a ballot by watching the winner of this year's "Gallantly Streaming" video contest hosted by the Federal voter Assistance Program.
Due to new regulations currently in effect for overseas voting, the Department of State urges overseas voters to send in a new registration/ballot request form every election year, and whenever you change your name, address or email address.
For information on voting registration, absentee ballot requests and absentee voting, as well as web-based and printable forms, please visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program at FVAP.gov. For information about election dates and deadlines, subscribe to FVAP's Voting Alerts at firstname.lastname@example.org. FVAP also shares Voting Alerts via Facebook and Twitter. You can also find more information on voting overseas on the State Department webpage on overseas voting.

Voter Assistance in El Salvador
The American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit at the Embassy can assist U.S. citizens with completing voting forms and provide pre-printed voting forms and postage-paid envelopes.
While we are happy to provide voter assistance, please note that it is not possible for U.S. citizens in El Salvador to vote at the U.S. Embassy in federal, state or local elections. You must use the absentee voting process, if you plan on voting in El Salvador.
You may bring in your forms or ballots to the ACS Unit for mailing back to the United States free of charge with a postage-paid envelope. If you prefer to use El Salvador’s postal system, be sure to affix sufficient postage and allow enough time for international mail delivery.
The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in San Salvador is located at Final Boulevard Santa Elena Sur, Urbanización Santa Elena, Antiguo Cuscatlán, La Libertad, and we are open from 8:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. weekdays, excluding U.S. and Salvadoran holidays.
You may also contact the American Citizen Services Voting Assistance Officer with your voting-related questions at (503) 2501-2628 or via email at email@example.com.
