U.S. Overseas Voter Registration Event Recap

Embassy officers assist U.S. voters to register and request absentee ballots on February 25, 2012 at Tartine Bakery & Cafe, Seoul.

On February 25, 2012 the U.S. Embassy held an event for U.S. overseas voters at Tartine Bakery & Cafe in Itaewon, Seoul.  Over 100 people came out to ask questions about registering to vote from overseas and absentee balloting, and we ended up with a box chock full of voter registration forms that were sent to local U.S. voting officials. Thank you to everyone who came out to the event, and to Chef Garrett and the excellent bakers at Tartine for hosting us and feeding us. 

Packed house! Standing room only for the U.S. overseas voter registration event. We had four computers fully occupied for four hours, and other voters prepared by looking through the Voting Assistance Guide while waiting their turn. Tasty treats from Tartine Bakery and Cafe helped make the time go by faster!

A U.S. voter submits his Federal Post Card Application to register in his home state and request an absentee ballot. The voter registration box is available 24 hours a day at the U.S. Embassy in Seoul - drop off voting materials to be mailed to the U.S. for free through the APO. Please make sure the envelope has the pre-paid postage seal - a printable envelope template is available at http://www.fvap.gov
