You may cast your ballot for the 2018 General Election in West Virginia by
using mobile voting technology. Eligible participants are active duty Airmen
in the Uniformed Services, Merchant Marine, and activated National Guard
members on state orders, as well as their families currently living outside
their county of residence.
The mobile voting option is available for Airmen and their families
registered to vote in any of the following WV counties:
To participate, request your absentee ballot by submitting the Federal Post
Card Application (FPCA) to your county clerk, which can be obtained from
your Voting Assistance Office or the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s
website at https://www.fvap.gov/uploads/FVAP/Forms/fpca.pdf. On the FPCA,
check “email or online” as your voting preference.
Once your FPCA is received by the county clerk, you will receive an email
with instructions for downloading the secure app to your mobile device. Once
the app is downloaded, you will be prompted to verify your identity using
biometrics and a government issued ID. Please note that the Common Access
Card is not permitted to be photographed, so you must use another form of ID
(e.g. driver’s license, passport or other government issued ID).
Please consider taking advantage of this technology, which is designed to
eliminate the vast barriers Airmen face when trying to vote. Your
participation will help WV continue to improve your voting ability and
experience while serving our country.
