U.S. Embassy•Embajada USA in Costa Rica - Final Opportunities to Return Voted Ballots

Seal with blue background

U.S. Embassy San Jose, Costa Rica
Message for U.S. Citizens
Final Opportunities to Return Voted Ballots
22 October 2014

Embassies and consulates are not polling places.  The majority of states require voted ballots to reach local election officials by the close of polls on Tuesday, November 4.  U.S. citizens who want to participate in the 2014 U.S. elections should already have returned their absentee ballots to their local election officials.  U.S. embassies and consulates are not polling places; same-day in-person voting is not available outside the United States.

Never received your ballot?  If you have registered to vote and requested your absentee ballot prior to your state’s registration and absentee ballot request deadlines but have not yet received your ballot, you should immediately complete and return a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot to ensure your vote reaches election officials by your state’s deadline.  If your regular ballot arrives later, go ahead and complete and return it as well.  Your Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot will only be counted if your regular ballot does not reach local election officials by your state’s deadline.  Your vote will not be counted twice.

Ballot not yet sent to local election officials?  If you wish to participate in this election and have not yet sent your ballot to your local election official, you should consider returning your ballot to the United States via an express courier service such as FedEx, UPS, or DHL.  Some states or counties may allow you to return your voted ballot electronically.  Ballots sent to local election officials via express courier service do not receive standard postmarks, so voters using this method should confirm delivery on or before November 4 prior to payment and shipment.  Check your state’s voting procedures at www.FVAP.gov for guidance.

Returning your Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot by email or fax.  If you have previously registered to vote and requested an absentee ballot but it has not yet arrived, the following states allow voters to use email or fax to send signed, voted Federal Write-in Absentee Ballots to local election officials:  Arizona, California (fax only), Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii (fax only), Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska (paper copy must also be mailed), Nevada, New Jersey (paper copy must also be mailed), New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon (paper copy must also be mailed), South Carolina, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia.  Check your state’s voting procedures at www.FVAP.gov for guidance.

Returning your ballot by mail.  Ballots sent via regular international mail at this late date are unlikely to reach local election officials by state ballot receipt deadlines.  If you still wish to send your voted ballot via mail, place your voted ballot in a U.S. postage-paid envelope addressed to your local election officials.  Drop it off at the Embassy, and we’ll send it back home for you without the need to pay international postage.  If you can’t visit the Embassy in person, ask a friend or colleague to drop it off for you.  If it’s easier for you to use Costa Rica's postal system, be sure to affix sufficient international postage, and allow sufficient time for international mail delivery. 

You can get voting assistance from the embassy or drop off your completed voting forms and ballots, addressed to your local election officials, during the following hours:

Monday-Friday 8:00 – 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Normal transit time from San Jose to the United States is 10 days.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT OVERSEAS VOTING.  Please help spread the word to your friends, family, and colleagues that now is the time to start thinking about overseas voting.  Consider posting to your Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or other social media account that you are an active voter and will be dropping off or mailing your Federal Post Card Application or completed ballot.  Use #ProudOverseasVoter to help get the word out about voting.
Have Questions?  Please contact Embassy San Jose’s Voting Assistance Officer at 2519-2590 or at ACSSanJose@state.gov. 
Confirm your registration and ballot delivery online.  Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program's (FVAP) website at www.FVAP.gov.

ACS In the Field: Let us speak to your student groups

Consular Officers at the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica look forward to opportunities to speak to U.S. citizen students who are studying in Costa Rica.  Presenters provide tips to help students avoid becoming victims of crime, outline potential dangers, and provide information on services provided by the U.S. Embassy to U.S. citizens.  If you are expecting a group of students and you would like them to receive a security briefing, please email ACSSanJose@state.gov. 

Obtaining Your State Vital Records

Three moves equal one house fire.  How many times have you moved, and do you know where your birth certificates and marriage certificates are?  Has the Costa Rican humidity gotten to them?  Given that the United States comprises fifty states and many other territories, obtaining original copies of your vital records can be difficult.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has created a portal with links to the offices of the fifty states and other territories where you can request copies of your vital records.  Each state has its own set of requirements, but the online portal can help direct you to the appropriate state office. 

Education Exchange

In 2011, President Barack Obama launched an initiative to increase education exchanges between the United States and Latin America, 100,000 Strong.  In this initiative, the U.S. government aims “to work with partners in the region, including the private sector, to increase the number of U.S. students studying in Latin America to 100,000 and the number of Latin American students studying in the United States to 100,000.”  The U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica is working to fulfill this goal, providing scholarships to some Costa Ricans to study in the United States.  If you know any students who would like to study in the United States, encourage them to investigate all of the great opportunities.

Combating Trafficking and Increasing Security

The U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica is committed to assisting the Costa Rican government combat narcotics trafficking and improve domestic security.  In July, Chargé d’Affaires, a.i., Gonzalo R. Gallegos, inaugurated a new border checkpoint located at Kilometer 35 on the Southern Inter-American Highway.  The U.S. Government donated one million dollars to the construction of the checkpoint, which will assist the Costa Ricans to interdict narcotics and other illegal items transiting the country.

Riptide Warning

Sadly, several U.S. citizen families have returned from their vacation to Costa Rica without a loved family member who was lost in a drowning.  This year, more than a dozen U.S. citizens have died as a result of drowning.  Several of the victims were young, in good health, and strong swimmers.  Riptides are often to blame, pulling otherwise good swimmers away from shore and under the water.  Please be mindful of riptides and warn your guests of the dangers of the ocean.
