As we prepare for the 2020 election cycle, we want to alert you to recent developments that may impact how American citizens send and receive mail outside the United States. Currently, the United States is a member of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), an organization that allows member nations to receive and deliver mail through an international postal exchange agreement. Due to an unresolved dispute, the United States may withdraw from the UPU on October 17, 2019. Such a withdrawal may impact the ability of uniformed services and overseas voters to send and receive absentee ballots. For the latest information on this situation, please visit https://www.fvap.gov/UPU.
What does this mean for you?
Should the U.S. depart the UPU, uniformed services and overseas voters may need to make alternate arrangements to receive and/or return absentee ballots. Oklahoma law allows the return of absentee ballots and balloting materials by United States mail, by fax, or by a private delivery service that has delivery documentation. Absentee balloting materials may not be returned electronically. To be counted, absentee ballots must be received by your County Election Board by 7:00 PM Central Time on election day.
If you are signed up to receive absentee ballots by mail through the Federal Voter Assistance Program (FVAP), we advise you to take action immediately to ensure you receive your absentee ballots by electing to receive ballots electronically.
All voters who have signed up to receive ballots through the FVAP will receive communication from the State Election Board regarding their options. For more information, please read the following correspondence to Oklahoma's uniformed services and overseas voters:
