What's an FPCA?
A Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) is necessary to request an Vote by Mail ballot when living temporarily or permanently outside the U.S. The form is available at any Registrar of Voters, American Consulate or with the Voting Assistance Officer on a military base.
The form may also be downloaded from the FVAP website.
