…Americans living overseas tend to ignore U.S. mid-term elections. This year, however, is different. The number of Americans living outside the U.S. who requested absentee ballots for the 2018 mid-term elections was up seven-fold, compared to the most recent mid-terms.
Of the more than 3 million American expats eligible to vote, just 6.9% of this group voted in the 2016 presidential election. With online registration now available, it’s quick and simple to vote with an absentee ballot, thus giving a stronger voice to Americans overseas.
For future reference: U.S. citizens can receive an absentee ballot by email, fax, or internet download, depending upon the state in which they are eligible to vote. See Absentee Voting Information for US Citizens Living Abroad.
