Voting Overseas: A Discussion on the American Vote from Abroad



Voting Overseas: A Discussion on the American Vote from Abroad


The Council of American Ambassadors was delighted to host the Director of the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), David Beirne, for an informative discussion concerning the American vote from abroad. What is the voting process like for U.S. citizens in foreign countries? What challenges do they face in submitting ballots in the middle of a pandemic? Why is FVAP housed in the Department of Defense? How can voters abroad ensure their vote is counted?


Director Beirne answered these questions and more during our virtual webinar moderated by former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Ambassador Bruce Heyman.
