Certain recently discharged or transferred military voters can register (and vote absentee in the clerk's office) through noon on Election Day (November 3, 2020.)
See form ABS-13 for details. Not every military voter qualifies.
FPCA Standard Form 76 is a combined registration and absentee ballot application. This form and instructions are available at the Federal Voting Assistance Program website: www.fvap.gov .

Military or overseas voters casting their ballot by e-mail or fax must sign an affidavit stating that they understand that their ballot cannot be a secret ballot.

The election board has a bi-partisan team that must remake the ballot onto an official ballot to be tabulated.
