Overseas Voting Reminder: If you have not already done so, we recommend that you drop off your ballot by tomorrow, Thursday, October 15, to account for delivery times.  The Consular Sections in Abu Dhabi and Dubai will continue to accept and mail ballots until Election Day, November 3, but we cannot guarantee that they will arrive to the United States on time to meet local election officials’ requirements.

You may consider returning your ballot to the United States via a commercial express courier service such as FedEx, UPS, or DHL for quick delivery if you are sending your completed ballot after October 15th.

The Department of State is committed to assisting overseas voters in casting their ballots.  For instructions on how to vote from the United Arab Emirates, please see our website https://ae.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/voting/  For general overseas voting information please see the Department of State’s web site Absentee Voting Information for U.S. Citizens Abroad or FVAP.gov.

Have Questions?  Please contact the UAE’s Voting Assistance Officers at VoteAbuDhabi@state.gov or VoteDubai@state.gov. You can also contact the Federal Voting Assistance Program directly if you encounter issues with local election officials by emailing Vote@FVAP.gov or toll free by phone from many countries around the world.

Confirm your registration and ballot delivery online.  Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) website at www.FVAP.gov.
