Military, overseas, and out of state registation

If you are out of state you can register to vote in your state if it is still your permanent residence. If you are in the military you can vote using either of two applications. The Federal Postcard Application or The Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot, this is usually considered a back up ballot because many people would rather use the FPCA. But no matter which ballot you choose you must physically sign both of them and turn it in to the State Board of Election by 5 p.m. the day before the election.
