Voting in US elections Empty Voting in US elections

Post by LCS Bus Trips Sat Jan 30, 2016 8:13 am

The service desk at the Lake Chapala Society has 2 books detailing how to request an application to vote in the US elections. The applications are dependent upon the state in which one last resided prior to moving to Mexico or elsewhere.

One must submit the request to their last known state residence in order to get "recognized' and for the election office to send a ballot to them. The manner of submitting the request is determined by each state whether it can be faxed, sent electronically or mailed. The same applies for the actual ballot.

You are welcome to view the books at the LCS; service desk hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Please note that LCS is closed on Monday, February 1, for Dia de Constitucion.

Or go to VoteFromAbroad.org and fill out the forms. IF your state has a primary rather than a caucus, depending on state laws, you may be able to vote in the primary. Keep in mind, in most states you must already have declared a party in order to vote in the primary.

What about if you came from a territory where residents couldn't vote in Federal elections?

You use the last US address where you are registered to vote.

Unfortunately due to the fact that I was registered to  vote in Utah my vote doesn't really count thanks to the electoral college rule.
