Americans throughout the United States and around the world are encouraged to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote. The U.S. Consulate General in Bermuda would like to invite all U.S. citizens to register to vote for the upcoming 2020 primary and general elections.
On Friday, January 17, 2020, the U.S. Consulate will host its first Voter Registration Drive at the Consulate offices on Middle Road from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 pm. At the drive, American citizens will be able register to vote and request an absentee ballot by submitting the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). Staff will be available to assist.
American citizens are required to bring a government-issued photo identification such as a U.S. passport or a state driver’s license to complete the FPCA. Please note that some states also require your full Social Security number to complete the application. Before the event, check your state’s identification requirements in the Voting Assistance Guide on FVAP.gov.
The FPCA is the primary method of communication between you and your state election officials. It allows you to apply to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and/or update your contact information with your local election office. Whether you are a first-time voter or have voted absentee in past elections, you must complete the FPCA to receive your 2020 ballot.
