Voters from both states can verify the status of their voting materials by contacting their election office directly.
Voters who do not receive their requested state absentee ballot in time to return it by the ballot return deadline, can send the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB) to their election office as a backup ballot. If the state absentee ballot arrives after sending in the FWAB, the voter may complete and submit the official ballot, too. Only one ballot will be counted.
FVAP offers an email-to-fax forwarding service for voters from states that allow voted ballots to be faxed, but do not allow email return of voted ballots. Voters who do not have access to a fax machine can email their completed ballot to fax@FVAP.gov and FVAP will forward the ballot as a fax to the appropriate election office.
