    West Point Armed Forces Voting Week and Absentee Voters Week
    West Point Armed Forces Voting Week and Absentee Voters Week is from Sept. 29-Oct. 5.

    There will be voting information tables set up at the Post Exchange and Building 622 at different times during the week.
    There will be FPCA’s (Absentee Ballot requests) and state registration forms, and there will also be some giveaways (cups, pens, stress balls) for the eligible voters.
    The intent of Armed Forces Voting Week and Absentee Voters Week is to reach out to all eligible voters and to ensure that all have requested their absentee ballots and to provide state and local voting information to the eligible voter. Read More
