VOTING BY MAIL – DEPOSIT YOUR BALLOT AT THE U.S. EMBASSY OR CONSULATE GENERAL
You have a few options for getting your ballot to the United States.
Some states already support electronic voting, but if your state requires you to return a paper ballot by mail, you can choose from one of these methods.
Option 1 – Drop your U.S.- postage paid ballot in the ballot box at the U.S. Embassy in the Hague (John Adams Park 1, Wassenaar) or the Consulate General Amsterdam (Museumplein 19, Amsterdam). A ballot envelope that says “No Postage Necessary if Mailed in the United States” can be dropped in one of our ballot boxes without any additional postage.
Option 2 – Send your ballot to your U.S. election office through the Dutch international mail system, PostNL. Standard international postage rates apply.
If you choose option 2 or 3, please review delivery timeline information to ensure that your ballot will arrive by the deadline. Make sure your vote counts!
Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) website, FVAP.gov. If you have questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact the U.S. Consulate General Amsterdam’s Voting Assistance Officer at VoteAmsterdam@state.gov.
