US Consulate to hold voter-registration drive

A voter-registration drive will be held by the US Consulate for the United States’ primary and general elections this year.

US citizens have been invited to a session at the consulate offices on January 17.

They will be able to register to vote and request an absentee ballot through a Federal Post Card Application, “the primary method of communication between you and your state election officials”.

A statement from the US Consulate General added: “It allows you to apply to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and/or update your contact information with your local election office.

“Whether you are a first-time voter or have voted absentee in past elections, you must complete the FPCA to receive your 2020 ballot.”

US citizens will need to take government-issued photo identification, like a US passport or a state driver’s licence, to complete the FPCA.

Some states also demand a voter’s full social security number to complete the application.

US citizens were asked to check, before the registration drive, their state’s identification requirements in the Voting Assistance Guide on

Staff will be available to help at next week’s event, which will be held at the US Consulate General, Middle Road, Devonshire, from 1pm to 4pm.
