A Soldier at Fort Rucker, Ala., trained as a voting assistance officer, signs in to receive his instructional books for the Federal Voting Assistance Program held in February, 2010.
As part of the effort to ensure that National Guard members are able to vote when deployed overseas, the New York State Board of Elections established a new webpage to allow military and overseas voters to obtain general election ballots by email in addition to the existing fax and mail options.
The program, found at www.elections.state.ny.us and clicking the link for "Military & Overseas Voters," complies with the MOVE Act (Military & Overseas Voters Empowerment).
For more information about the FVAP, or help with absentee voting, call (800) 438-8683.
