ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The U.S. Embassy wishes to advise U.S. citizens that the State of Florida will hold a special primary election in the 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, to fill the seat vacated upon the passing of Congressman Bill Young.  The special election will only impact voters in Pinellas County.

 

January 14 special primary election deadlines are as follows:

  • 7pm EST, Tuesday, January 24, 2014 (10-day extension for overseas military and civilians)

 

There is no special run-off election as the candidate who receives the highest number of votes is declared nominated for the office.

 

The special general election will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2014.

 

You can register to vote and/or request an absentee ballot by using the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) automated tool at: http://www.fvap.gov/registration/reg-ballot-request-fl.html.

 

If you are registered and have requested your ballot, but are concerned you may not receive your ballot in time to vote, use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). The FWAB cannot be used to register to vote. Florida allows voters to use the FWAB to vote in elections for any Federal office, and any State or local office with at least two candidates.

 

The FWAB online assistant is available at: http://www.fvap.gov/ballot/ballot-fl.html. The FWAB is also available at military installations around the world. You can track your ballot status online by logging in directly to your local election official’s website at: http://www.votepinellas.com/ or indirectly through the Florida Division of Elections’ Voter Lookup Portal: http://registration.elections.myflorida.com/.

For more information on FVAP or assistance with the absentee voting process, visit FVAP.gov, call FVAP at 1-800-438-VOTE or DSN 425-1584 (CONUS)/312-425-1584 (OCONUS) or email [email protected]. Facebook.com/DoDFVAP Twitter @FVAP
