NOAA Corps Federal Voting Assistance Program

While many NOAA Corps officers and their families will be far from home on election days, they are able to cast their votes -- thanks to absentee ballots and the NOAA Corps' Voting Assistance Program.

The Voting Assistance Guide and your CPC Human Resources Specialist can assist you with registering and requesting a ballot online or using the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA) Standard Form 76. Completing the FPCA and sending it to your local voting jurisdiction is all it takes.

The best time to apply for an absentee ballot is more than 45 days before the election.

In most states, ballots are mailed to voters 20 days before the election. Remember, every vote counts. You are a part of this nation's way of life by exercising your right to vote!
