FORT RUCKER, Ala. (September 4, 2014) -- The 2014 mid-term elections take place Nov. 4 with campaigns in full swing between now and then for 36 U.S. Senate seats, all 435 House of Representatives seats and 35 state governorships.
Additionally, numerous other state and local municipal issues will be decided by registered voters from their respective areas.

The Federal Voting Assistance Program works to ensure Service members, their eligible Family members and overseas citizens are aware of their right to vote, and have the tools and resources to successfully do so – from anywhere in the world.

Remember, registering early is best. Early submission of a Federal Post Card Application allows voting officials time to verify and validate the information submitted to them, then send out the ballot information with time to complete and return the ballot so it can be counted in the Nov. 4 elections.
