10/15/2010 Electronic Voting System Project

U.S. Embassy Warden Message - Electronic Voting System Project

October 15, 2010

Attention U.S. citizen voters:

The following 25 states, or parts of these states, are participating in an Electronic Voting System project:

Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia

If you vote in one of these states/counties, you should follow the instructions in the attached Electronic Voting System Fact Sheet to find your respective state, and use all of the voting options available to you through www.FVAP.gov.  Many of these state tools allow you to use a full ballot reflecting all contests (federal, state, and local).  Follow the instructions for returning the voted ballot.

If you subsequently receive your blank state ballot from your state after submitting the online ballot, you should vote and return the state ballot immediately.  The state ballot will take priority over the electronic voting project ballot if both are received by the state deadline.

If you have already received, voted, and returned your state ballot, you should not participate in this project.

If you have questions about this project, or about voting, please contact the voting assistance officer at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli at consulartripoli@state.gov or +218 021 337 3100.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy is located in the Ben Ashour neighborhood on Jeraba Street behind the former Libyan-Swiss Clinic. Our phone number is 021-337-3100 during business hours.  In an emergency involving American citizens during working hours, (Sunday-Thursday 9am-5pm except Libyan and American holidays), please call (021) 337-3250.  Outside of Libya, the number is (+218) 21-337-3250.
