Military personnel and overseas civilian voters are offered special services for participating in elections through the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). This act allows overseas citizens to apply for and receive absentee ballots. UOCAVA covers all military personnel, members of the Merchant Marine, spouses or dependents of uniformed personnel, and civilian voters who are currently outside the U.S.
Overseas voters can take advantage of discounted mailing costs by visiting the Overseas Voters Foundation website.
Visit the Michigan Voter Information Center and follow the instructions to get this information.
