Get out the Vet is organized by veterans uniting to register our military, get out the overseas military vote, and watch the polls to ensure a fair and fraud-free election.
Volunteer: Veterans—Active, Reserve, Guard, Retired, and family members—join us by pressing the volunteer button and go to our sign-up page. We need help across the nation from veterans, families, and friends to help get out the overseas military vote and to support our registration analysis and operations in the field.
- MILITARY OVERSEAS VOTING: In light of the complete DoD disaster in setting up election assistance offices this year and the subsequent drop in military ballot requests, Get Out the Vet has launched a campaign to inform our troops on how to register, request ballots, and vote online.
- FEDERAL WRITE-IN ABSENTEE BALLOT: Overseas military can use the FWAB all the way up to Election Day if they have not received their state/county ballot on time. But troops aren’t getting the word. Get Out the Vet has launched an e-mail campaign to let them know how to do this.
- REDUCING VOTER INTIMIDATION: Get Out the Vet has partnered with former/retired Special Operations Force members to observe, report, and post videos of voter intimidation. We now have sufficient resources to observe all polling places with a history of voter intimidation.
- MONITORING ELECTIONS: Get Out the Vet is recruiting veterans to provide poll watchers and poll workers this election.
Contribute: Like any other campaign, we need money: to access voter databases; publicize via social media, internet, and talk shows; pay for travel; set up voter command centers on election day; and pay a small staff. We appreciate any contribution you can give. Press the donate button to contribute online via Paypal. If you are interested in supporting us with a large contribution not over the internet, e-mail us at email@example.com.
Register & Vote: For active-duty members of the Armed Forces, Merchant Marine, Public Health Service, NOAA, and their family members posted overseas, there is still time to register to vote and request your ballots. For help, press the “Register” button to the right for instructions, links, and deadlines for your state or territory..
Even if your ballot doesn’t get there on time, you can still vote with the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). You can get the ballot online, download it, and send it in by Election Day. All states must accept this ballot and most states allow it to be e-mailed or faxed. For instructions and links, just press the “Vote” button on the left.
