Absentee Ballot Request and Voter Registration Services for All U.S. Voters in All States at Home and Abroad

My Voter Account

A Voter Account moves with you, stays with you and informs you as a voter

The My Voter Account (MVA) application is designed to help you cultivate your personal democracy - with voting as a central action. With the MVA service, you can maintain a single account throughout your life and make voting a keystone of your own civic engagement. 

A Voter Account will return value to you for your voting effort. It reduces the redundancy of generating new absentee ballot request forms, finding current voting information and obtaining real service. 

Once you have an account, you can update and reprint your ballot request in seconds. Your MVA informs you personally about upcoming election dates and deadlines, how to contact your election official, who your elected officials are, and what candidates are running for office in your state. No more searching through different sites and services - now your Voter Account informs you, personally. Create your Voter Account and begin experiencing the MVA service today!
