This space contains background resources and comments on the proposal to adopt Overseas Vote Foundation's (OVF) hosted voter registration platform.

The new VFA site is now on-line at:

https://www.votefromabroad.org/

The Problem:

Our current VoteFromAbroad.org website is not up to date with current and accurate Local Election Official data or with the latest FPCA voter registration form, and the website in need of some crucial security and software module updates.
 
So, we face a choice.

A) We have the option of contracting our existing single developer to carry out these required updates – which will also require substantial time and input from DA volunteers to review and confirm the content and legal accuracy of both the State-by-State on-line input forms and the generated FPCA PDF documents.
 
Or, B) we have the option of establishing a hosted platform relationship with the Overseas Vote Foundation – a single-purpose non-profit organization that is focused on providing voter registration tools for US States and other voter registration organizations.
 
In either case, our use and promotion of www.VoteFromAbroad.org web address will not change!

    I have gone through the site several times and when I get to the page that asks if one wants to create an account,

    which I don't, and then click on "continue without account", I cannot get past that page or screen.  It keeps returning

    to the beginning. I don't understand. Am I the only one who has this problem?  I have  to say I prefer the old site

    except for one or two things like being able to store one's information and call it up again when or if needed.  Do

    voters really need access to candidates in their states when filling out a ballot request?  My feeling, perhaps wrong, 

    is that OVF put in stuff that is on their own forms.  One thing I loved is the first page! Very eye catching.  This is from

    Louise Meyers in France because according to what I read above, this will be marked as anonymous.
