Military and Overseas Voters

Who are UOCAVA Voters?

UOCAVA voters are U.S. Citizens who reside outside the U.S. (i.e., overseas).  They are eligible to receive a ballot from the state/county in which they last resided immediately prior to moving overseas.  UOCAVA voters who were born outside of the U.S. are eligible to receive a ballot from the state/county where their parents last resided prior to moving overseas.
