    • Hello. I’m sorry, we don’t have your name on our mailing list, so I’m not sure how you were contacted. I will keep looking and make sure you are removed. Thank you.


  1. Do you any information of college student living overseas for the semester voting by email. The office has sent an email but I checked the voter record and the ballot has not been logged in yet?


      • Thank you for checking. I did check also. I have contact the voter office. She must send (overnight) the printed ballot (4 pages) to the Hampton office by Monday. I hope she is willing to do that. The Hampton office has been very good in assisting me and my daughter through the overseas process.
