Voting in U.S. Special Elections: TX, NM

  • 1 May 2021: Texas Special Election in U.S. Congressional District 6 (Ellis and Navarro counties and a portion of Tarrant county)
  • 1 June 2021: New Mexico Special Primary in U.S. Congressional District 1 (Torrance county, and parts of Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Valencia counties)

Overseas citizens who are registering to vote for the first time can use the automated Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) completion tool.  Voters must submit a completed and signed FPCA to their local election office by the state’s voter registration deadline.

Vote your absentee ballot as soon as you get it, and be sure to carefully follow the state’s completion instructions and sign the voted ballot package as indicated when returning it. To save time, you may be able to return your voted ballot electronically if allowed by state law. Check online if your state can accept completed absentee ballots by email or fax.   If you requested your ballot, but haven’t received it in time to return by the ballot deadline, use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) as a backup ballot. If your official absentee ballot arrives after sending in the FWAB, you may complete and submit the official ballot too. Only one ballot will be counted per voter.  You can verify the voted ballot is received by contacting your election office for status updates. Use the FVAP website to find your state’s election website for specific information on candidates, elections, contact information, registration, and links to your local election office.
