Overseas and Uniformed Services Voters

Voting is a constitutional right that American citizens eighteen years and older can freely exercise. The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) and  Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act covers all active-duty members of the Uniformed Services and their families, members of the merchant marine and their families, and US citizens who reside overseas, and assists them in exercising their right to vote.

Overseas and Uniformed Services Voters can get their ballots up to 60 days before an election, either by mail or electronically, per the voters choice.
