U.S. Embassy Bucharest urges American citizens to vote in Presidential Preference Primaries and State Primaries

“The Presidential Preference Primaries and State Primaries are upon us and have already take place in some states.  It is never too early to register to vote in the American federal elections in November.  Americans citizens residing in Romania who have not registered in their U.S. state of residence should do so before it’s too late.

For more specific information on issues and candidates, non-partisan voter guides can be downloaded from national news websites like CNN or organizations like the League of Women Voters. Voters should also check their favorite local news source for election issues specific to their state and municipality.

U.S. citizens in Romania can make their voice heard in this year’s election by making sure they are registered to vote in their state of last residency. The Federal Voting Assistance Program (www.fvap.gov/) or a non-partisan overseas voter organization like Youth Vote Overseas (yvo.overseasvotefoundation.org) can be used to confirm registration, or to check an individual state’s voter registration deadlines and register online. Once voter registration is secured, U.S. citizens can choose to have a ballot sent to them by mail or email.

Overseas ballots can be filled out as soon as they are received. Deadlines for individual states can be found online here (https://www.overseasvotefoundation.org/election-dates-deadlines.htm).”
