MEMPHIS, Tenn.—FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., will support the Express Your Vote program developed by the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization Overseas Vote Foundation (OVF).
The Express Your Vote program will provide Americans abroad in 89 countries with express delivery of their absentee ballots from Sept. 15-Oct. 29. They will also have access to online shipping, track-and-trace capabilities and proof of delivery through the OVF Web site.
In 2006, the third most common reason ballots were rejected was because they were returned to local election offices after the deadline, according to statistics from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
“Overseas Vote Foundation is delighted to work with FedEx Express to bring Express Your Vote to U.S. overseas and military absentee voters in 89 countries,” says Susan Dzieduszycka-Suinat, president and CEO of OVF. “This initiative will bring tremendous value to overseas and military voters who need access to the unrivaled network and services of FedEx Express.”
