All U.S. citizens can receive their blank ballots electronically. Depending on the state in which you are eligible to vote, you may get your ballot by email, fax, or internet download.

Return your Completed, Signed Ballot

Some states allow you to return your completed ballot electronically and others do not. If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you can do so through international mail, professional courier service, or through Embassy Luxembourg’s diplomatic pouch.

If you are sending your ballot through the U.S. Embassy Luxembourg, ballots can be dropped off at the Embassy front gate.  Ballots must be placed in postage paid return envelopes or in envelopes bearing sufficient U.S. domestic postage so they may be delivered to the proper local election authorities (NOTE: postage from Luxembourg to the United States is not required using this method).

Please note that it can take up to four weeks for mail to reach its destination if sent through the embassy via diplomatic pouch. All overseas U.S. citizens are advised to submit their forms and ballots accordingly.

Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) website, FVAP.gov.  If you have any questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact US Embassy Luxembourg’s Voting Assistance Officer at  voteluxembourg@state.gov.

Remember, your vote counts!
