2022 Congressional Primaries are About to Begin


Congressional Primary Elections are coming up in all states. You have the opportunity to choose your candidates for the next General Election. A full third, 34 seats, of the U.S. Senate and all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives will be up for re-election.


Voting Guidelines for the 2022 Midterm Elections













Check Your Primary Election Dates and Deadlines

Remember - ours is a system of checks and balances. The power in our country is shared between three branches of government - executive, judicial and legislative.


Many members of the federal level legislative branch, Congress, are up for reelection this year. Congress has tremendous power to act as a check in the balance to the other branches of government. As the legislative branch, Congress makes laws and maintains oversight of the other branches of government.


The balance of power in the legislative branch will decide much of the outcome of the second half of our 46th presidential term. So, Let's Mobilize for the Midterms.

Your voice is your vote - and your vote will be heard!


Register and Request your Ballot Now for the 2022 Primaries



The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP)  is the official U.S. government website for overseas voters. They provide information on registering absentee for U.S. elections, as well as details of upcoming elections, registration dates and deadlines. The Department of State also maintains comprehensive information for U.S. citizens abroad who wish to vote in U.S. elections, which is available on their website .

To vote from abroad, you have to register to vote with local election officials in your state of legal (voting) residence, AND every year you have to request to receive absentee ballots.

You can begin the registration process at the FVAP website.

If you’d like more information on the Federal Voting Assistance Program or need help with the absentee voting process, please visit for live chat assistance; call FVAP at 1-800-438-VOTE or DSN at (425) 1584 (CONUS)/(312) 425-1584 (OCONUS); or email

Service members: Remember, you also can contact your unit or installation voting assistance officers. Don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook at @DoDFVAP and follow @FVAP on Twitter.
