Yes, you can, and you need to vote in 2020 because it may be the most important election in your lifetime. In order to vote in 2020, you must first request a ballot from your state.

Regardless of whether you voted in the last election, to vote in 2020, you must request your ballot again, beginning January 1. So don’t delay, do it now, before you forget and it’s too late.

Voting in 2020 is as simple as 1-2-3:

  1. Request your ballot using a smartphone by going to Votefromabroad.org – a non-partisan platform that helps US citizens vote from abroad  – and following the simple instructions there.
  2. After several weeks, call or email your local election office to verify that they received your ballot request.
  3. When you receive your ballot via email, return it according to the accompanying instructions. Many states allow you to return your ballot by email. If your state allows you to do this, you are in luck because it is the easiest, quickest, and safest way to vote.

It’s that simple.

Any questions, call the Vote from Abroad Costa Rica Hotline at VICTORY2.
