Ohio Military Votes

Dear Military Members and Overseas Voters:

Thank you for your brave and tireless service to our country. The year 2012 will be a very important election year, and my office is committed to ensuring that you have the information and materials you need to participate in the democratic process while you are away from your home location.

Receiving Your Absentee Ballot
If you filled out the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) form SF-76A in 2011, IT IS NOW EXPIRED. In order to continue receiving absentee ballots for each election this year simply fill out the attached form titled “FPCA”, sign and mail the form (You may print the address onto your own envelope using the attached PDF entitled “Return Envelope”), OR e-mail to OMV@OhioSecretaryofState.gov, OR  fax to (614) 485-7690.

The FPCA form can also be found on the Secretary of State’s website at:  www.OhioMilitaryVotes.com
