Absentee Ballot Voting:
In the state of Alabama, the Secretary of State has a wonderful website where a student can find information about anything regarding elections. The address is www.alabamavotes.gov. This website allows anyone to verify if they are registered to vote and, if so, in which precinct. It also has an application for overseas absentee voting, where a student can receive their ballots either through the mail or email. When completing the application for citizens living overseas during the election, students need to ensure they put an expiration date so that they do not continue to receive absentee ballots upon returning home.
Additionally, if a student is registered to vote in another state, the federal government has a website to assist them in applying for their state’s absentee ballot. The website address is http://www.fvap.gov.
