That said, when FVAP, the Federal Voting Assistance Program, asked me to join their group of bloggers posting about how easy it is for Americans living abroad can vote, I had to jump at the chance.
If you are an American – you should be voting in the upcoming elections. I am passionate about politics, and if I can do something to get one more person to register to vote, I am in.
It has never been easier. FVAP have set up an easy online system where you can do most of the registering over the Internet.
And it is not too late. FVAP has all the information you might need to help make sure your registration gets where it needs to be going.
I admit I was terrified of the voting process when I first moved abroad, it was tricky when I first left my home state. But really, these days it is easy. I swear.
I am attaching a widget to my site where, over the next few weeks you can register and get any information you may need about voting in the upcoming election.
You will also be forced to read a few blog posts by me about my previous voting woes and what it is like to vote from abroad. I will label all posts with FVAP in the title, so if you want to skip them I understand.
I was contacted by FVAP to write this series of blog posts, but I am not being compensated in any way.
I am voluntarily posting FVAP’s widget. The thoughts presented here are my own and do not reflect the opinions of FVAP or any of its representatives.
