You have expanded options to vote if you are away from home because you are a member of the military, a military dependent stationed outside Napa County, or a citizen living outside the United States. This is a federal law established by the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act and is commonly referred to as UOCAVA.
If you are currently overseas and need to register as a UOCAVA voter, download the form here or go to FVAP.gov for more information. Completed FVAP applications can be sent back via email, fax or mail.
As a UOCAVA voter, you have 3 ways to receive a ballot:
Beginning 60 days before Election Day, ballots will be sent out using your preferred delivery method. If you are unsure of your status as a UOCAVA voter, contact [email protected] for confirmation. You can check whether your UOCAVA ballot was issued or whether it has been received by our office through the Voter Information tool.
All UOCAVA voters will receive a ballot packet that includes a ballot, a return envelope, a voter information guide and instructions on how to mark and return your ballot. Ballots may be returned via mail or fax. For more information, contact [email protected].
Ballots can be returned by mail to Napa County Election Division, 1127 1st St, Ste E, Napa, CA 94559 or by fax to (707)253-4390. Ballots must be returned by mail or fax only. Scanned images of ballots sent by email are not permitted by California law.
