Mail Voter Registration and Absentee Ballots from Thailand

U.S. Embassy Bangkok and U.S. Consulate General Chiang Mai are accepting absentee voter registration and ballots to mail to the United States.

Returning Your Completed, Signed Voting Materials: All U.S. citizens can receive their blank ballots or voter registration forms electronically. Depending on the state in which you are eligible to vote, you may get your voting documents by email, fax, or internet download. Some states allow you to return your completed ballot electronically and others do not. If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you can do so through international mail, professional courier service, or through the U.S. Embassy Bangkok or U.S. Consulate General Chiang Mai.

U.S. citizen voters can mail these forms to the addresses below. Please ensure your voter registration form or ballot is sealed, addressed, and has U.S. postage before being placed inside of a separate envelope that is used to mail the ballot to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

Update on Absentee Voting Changes Related to COVID-19

FVAP is working closely with state election offices, the Military Postal Service Agency, the Department of State and other federal agencies to bring you up-to-date information on state election date changes and mailing delays. The FVAP.gov/COVID-19 page will provide updates and links to state-specific COVID-19 election impacts. To register and request your ballot from home, fill out the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) using FVAP’s easy online assistant.

FVAP recommends U.S. citizens overseas who have recently changed their address to send in a new FPCA to ensure receipt of absentee ballots for all federal office elections in this election year.
