Encourage all eligible dependents who have not completed high school to enroll in a DoDDS approved education program. If a DoDDS program is unsuitable to the parents, the installation commander shall encourage the parents to enroll their dependents in an alternate program."  Encouragement is not a requirement.)

  • Online Write-In Absentee Ballot Offered for Overseas Voters
  • Federal Write In Absentee ballot
    Under the provisions of the UOCAVA, the FVAP also provides a "back-up" ballot, called the Federal Write In Absentee Ballot, or FWAB, should a citizen overseas not receive his or her regular ballot from the state or territory.
    Generally, a citizen can only use the FWAB under three, very specific conditions. To be eligible for this ballot, the citizen must:

    Be located overseas (including APO/FPO addresses);

    Have applied for a regular ballot early enough so that the request is received by the local election official at least 30 days before the election;


    Not have received the requested regular absentee ballot.
