Myths "Leave me alone! One vote can't make a difference."

Wrong! Just take a look at recent election results.

Florida 2000: George W. Bush "wins" the state by a margin of 537 votes.

Washington 2004: Democrat Christine Gregoire becomes Governor by just 129 votes.

Ohio 2006: The race for a seat on the Erie County Democratic Committee ends in a dead tie.

Believe us -- every vote matters! Engage and help us find all those missing overseas voters!

Myths: " I don't have a US address anymore!"

Can I really vote? Yes you can!

"But I don't have an address in the US anymore."
Doesn't matter. The last place you lived will always be your legal voting address. Even if the knock it down and build a freeway. That's your voting address as long as you live overseas.

"But I've been gone for so many years."
So what. You are a US citizen and you will always have the right to vote for Federal offices. Forever.

"But I never registered to vote in the US."
No problem. Your ballot request form doubles as a voter registration form.

Just answer the questions at, print out the form, sign it and send it off to the address provided.

No more excuses. Sort it out today.

Myths: "Cut me some slack! I registered last time."

Not good enough! You should definitely request a ballot every election year.

True, Federal law now states that a ballot request is valid for 4 years. And true, some states - like California - allow permanent absentee registration.

But bear in mind... our overseas ballots are administered by 3,000 different local election authorities (count 'em! 3000!) and each one has its own understanding (or misunderstanding) of the law. Better safe than sorry -- send a new ballot request every election year!
