Military and Overseas Voters

We work to ensure that military and overseas voters are able to vote as efficiently as possible from far away locations.

These voters are called “UOCAVA” voters, termed by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA).

Read this information to determine if you are a UOCAVA voter. Please contact our office with any questions and refer to the resources provided.

UOCAVA voters encompass military or civilian electors.
