The mission of the Voting Assistance Program is to ensure that every Marine, their eligible family members and other personnel serving with a Marine Corps unit, who are absent from their voting residence and who are eligible to vote under the laws of their state, are provided absentee voting information and assistance to ensure that they have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
The right to vote is one of the most important civil liberties. Moreover, voting is an obligation that accompanies and protects the freedoms we enjoy. Since the birth of our Nation, Americans have understood their obligation as citizens to vote. By meeting their obligation to express themselves with the ballot, Americans have preserved our democratic system. All Marines, civilian employees, and their family members are encouraged to exercise their right to vote.
The following points of contact, documents, and references are provided to assist you with navigating the voting process for the elections for which you are eligible.
