If you have already registered but have not received a state ballot for the Nov. 6 general election, go to the Federal voting Assistance Program website at FVAP.gov and use the back-up, federal write-in absentee ballot.

For each office listed, select or write in either a candidate's name or their party designation. If you receive your state ballot after submitting the federal write-in ballot, vote and return the state ballot as well. You will only receive one vote; the State will only count your federal ballot if the state ballot is not received by the deadline. If your state ballot is received by the deadline your state ballot will be counted and the federal ballot will be disregarded.
