INSTRUCTIONS TO VOTER FOR INDICATING YOUR CHOICES ON A
FEDERAL WRITE-IN ABSENTEE BALLOT (FWAB):
To complete a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), go to www.fvap.gov. You have the option of downloading a blank, hard copy FWAB to complete by hand, or proceeding through electronic completion of the FWAB using the website’s FWAB Wizard.
The first page of the FWAB is a Voter Declaration/Affirmation you must complete in order for your ballot to count.
After completing the Voter Declaration/Affirmation, use the initial election notice issued on the 100th day before the election and the updated election notice issued on the 45th day before the election as a guide to:
(1) write the name of each candidate or issue contest for which you are casting a vote and then
(2) write the name of your choice of candidate or choice for or against an issue.
After you have completed the FWAB, you must PRINT the ballot and MAIL it to your county board of elections at this address: Wayne County Board of Elections, 200 Vanover Street-Ste. 1, Wooster, OH 44691. A complete listing of all county board of elections mailing addresses and contact information is available at http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/elections/electionsofficials/boeDirectory....
Do not send your ballot via e-mail or fax; Ohio law prohibits electronic transmission of a voted ballot.
