Americans living outside that country should check if they can still register to vote in next week's presidential election.
Voting will not be possible at either the United States Embassy in Kingston or the Consular Agency in Montego Bay, St James, on election day, which will be next Tuesday, November 6.
According to embassy officials, each state has different requirements on when the ballots can be requested and returned. For some states like Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, South Carolina and Utah, the ballot requests are due tomorrow, November 2. For Michigan and Ohio, it is due November 3, and Massachusetts and Montana's requests are due November 5.
Most states require that the ballots are postmarked by election day while others require them to arrive at the election office by election day. The deadline for states such as Florida and New York has already passed.
Voters are urged to go to www.fvap.gov for more information on what their states' specific requirements are. Persons can also make queries by contacting the American Citizen Services' 24-hour help desk at (876) 702-6000.
