An official website of the United States government

I haven't lived in the states for some time. Which state should I register with/which address should I give?

The FVAP website has useful information to help you decide which address and state to use when registering to vote absentee. This includes information about what to do if:

  • You don’t remember your last U.S. address.
  • You no longer have ties to the state you last lived in.
  • You’re not sure if you’re going to return to live in that state.
  • You are in the UK as a student.
  • You have never lived in the United States.
