Message for U.S. Citizens: Don’t forget to submit your absentee ballot!

The U.S. Embassy wants to ensure that every U.S. citizen in Haiti is able to exercise their right to vote and reminds you to submit your ballot on or before October 13, 2020. Please be advised that U.S. Embassy Haiti is closed on Monday October 12, 2020 to observe the Columbus Day holiday. The voting box will be available on Tuesday October 13, 2020 at 7:00am.

How to get an Absentee Ballot  

Visit the FVAP website and request an absentee ballot for the state in which you are registered to vote, by filling out and submitting the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). 

If you request an absentee ballot and do not receive it, you can still vote absentee by completing a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). FWABs are available on-line at or from the American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit at the Embassy. If you need additional assistance, call (509) 2229 8000 or  

How to send your Absentee Ballot
