The Floyd County Election team members work very hard to ensure that the men and women who are protecting our county are able to cast their ballot. We're fortunate to have numerous resources at our disposal to make this possible. Please see the information provided on how to cast your ballot if you are in the United States Military.
A military voter is an individual serving away from his/her place of permanent residence who is also:
- A member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, marine Corps, Coast Guard, or other uniformed service on active duty who, by reason of active duty, is absent from the place of residence where the member is otherwise qualified to vote.
- A member of the Merchant Marine who by reason of service in the Merchant Marine, is absent from the place of residence where the member is otherwise qualified to vote.
- A member of the Indiana National Guard deployed or on assignment outside of Indiana
- A spouse or dependent of a member referred to above who, by reason of the active duty or service of the member, is absent from the place of residence where the spouse or dependent is otherwise qualified to vote.
An OVERSEAS VOTER IS:
• A person who resides outside of the United States AND who is qualified to vote in the last place in which the person was domiciled before leaving the United States.
• A person who resides outside the United States and, but for such residence, would be qualified to vote in the last place in which the person was domiciled before leaving the United States.
• A voter who lives abroad and no longer has a legal residence in Indiana may only vote for federal offices as well as a person residing outside of the United States “indefinitely”.
