Message for U.S. Citizens: Federal Voter Assistance Program (FVAP)

Federal Voter Assistance Program (FVAP)


FVAP will be hosting Virtual Voting Assistance Hours every week until November 4, 2022.  FVAP’s Voting Assistance Ambassadors will be hosting the Zoom meetings and provide the opportunity for voters to have one-on-one virtual discussions with voters in the Ambassadors’ time zones.  However, any overseas absentee American voter is welcome to join in order to get their voting questions answered.

Voters will be let into the meeting one-by-one in order to have a conversation with the Ambassadors in the order they log into the Zoom meeting.

In 2020, the Ambassadors were able to successfully assist voters from across the globe during the final two weeks of the election.  This year, FVAP has expanded their hours and sessions (links to the meetings included):
