U.S. Vote Foundation proudly announces the release of a newly updated rendition of its Overseas Vote website (www.overseasvotefoundation.org). This welcoming website is designed to inspire and assist the 4.4 million[1] American citizens living or traveling abroad to take part in the 2024 elections.

Its a new day for U.S. citizen voters abroad,” says Susan Dzieduszycka-Suinat, President and CEO of U.S. Vote Foundation and Overseas Vote. “We invite you to visit our updated Overseas Vote site with its fresh approach to engaging overseas civilian citizen voters, and uniformed services voters[2] and their families. For too long, U.S. citizens abroad have struggled to find information and services that make voting from abroad a joy. We have that for you with Overseas Vote.

“With this latest iteration of Overseas Vote, we aim to convey the message that, if you’re an American abroad, temporarily or indefinitely, you carry your right to vote in your pocket. The voting process is simple, your questions can be answered and, as a citizen, you owe it to your country to cast your ballot and make your voice heard.”

Overseas Vote was originally explored as a short-term, proof-of-concept pilot project called Overseas Vote 2004. The project met with resounding success, after which a core group of independent thinkers came together to establish Overseas Vote as a nonpartisan, nonprofit public charity in 2005.

Twenty years later, Overseas Vote continues to thrive, as the need for a nonpartisan, nongovernmental organization that provides voter services and election information to the millions of American citizens who continue to live, work, study, travel, and serve their country across the globe.

The site you see today marks the sixth major iteration of Overseas Vote, and one that US Vote considers a major transition, as it no longer relies on the moving parts” software and services that comprised it in the past. These tools and information nowlive” with our parent organization under the U.S. Vote Foundation brand, which presents a website with a super-set of services for all U.S. voter types: domestic, overseas, and military.
