  1. Sorry, this is our first time voting outside of the country. Will he also take our ballots and mail them to the US? We have followed the directions on fvap.gov and I have our ballots and the envelopes ready to print (and I’m trying to find a place to print them out here in Boquete). We are registered in the state of Nevada and can also scan the documents back into an email (if I could find a scanner too) instead of having to mail them.

    Thanks for any info.

  2. Florence – This is the answer I got from the Embassy.
    “We will take them, if they are stamped and sealed, since we are going to take them at the embassy.”
