Improving State Elections for U.S. Military and Civilian Overseas Voters

For decades, members of the U.S. military and their dependents experienced problems at every step of the overseas voting process: registering to vote, requesting and receiving absentee ballots, and returning absentee ballots. State and local election administrators are faced with many challenges associated with maintaining accurate registration rolls for a highly mobile and transient population, some of whom reside in remote areas of the world. This eCademy session provides an overview of the challenges for overseas voting, as well as how CSG, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program, is helping to improve the U.S. military and overseas voting process through CSG’s Overseas Voting Initiative.
