Voting Deadline Approaching

There’s still time to vote from abroad!

The Department of State is now advising voters to send ballots by October 15th, 2020.  Look closely at the guidance for voting in your home state, as some offer submissions by email and fax in addition to traditional mail.  If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you may do so at the U.S. Embassy in Doha, Qatar.  Place your ballots in postage paid return envelopes (please click here to download the postage paid template) or in envelopes bearing sufficient domestic U.S. postage, and address them to the relevant local election officials.  Drop off ballots in their sealed envelopes at the U.S. Embassy Doha’s Passport Passback Window on Mondays and Thursdays, between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m.
