VOTING BY MAIL FROM THE NETHERLANDS
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 Consulate General Amsterdam’s ballot box at Museumplein 19. Then collect your I VOTED sticker from the guards!
Option 2 – Send your ballot to your U.S. election office through the Dutch international mail system, PostNL. Standard international postage rates apply.
Option 3 – Use an express delivery service, such as UPS, DHL, or FedEX to send your ballot to the United States. Commercial 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 any questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact U.S. Consulate General Amsterdam’s Voting Assistance Officer at VoteAmsterdam@state.gov.
