Overseas Voting: Strategies for Engaging Every Voter - The Council of State Governments Overseas Voting Initiative Policy Working Group, November 2016: This report provides detailed recommendations to improve the voting experience for military and overseas voters, in areas including:

  • Voter communication, such as letting these voters know when their ballot application is accepted and providing them information about what is on the ballot;
  • Voter registration, including treating the Federal Post Card Application, or FPCA, as a permanent request for voter registration; and
  • Engaging with the U.S. military community by establishing partnerships between state and local election officials and local military installations.
