Federal Post Card Application and Ballot Request Form*

*You must provide either a Michigan issued ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number. If you do not have either of these numbers you must enter in Section 6: “I do not have a Social Security Number or Michigan-issued ID number.”

Federal Post Card Application Process

Active-duty military, their families, and overseas citizens can register to vote and request absentee ballots using the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The FPCA process is done by mail, but specific states may offer other options to request and return ballots. To view the FPCA guidelines for Michigan, click here or the link above.
