U.S. Citizens Encouraged to Vote

All American citizens who have not yet registered to vote in the November 7 Presidential Election should do so as soon as possible. Any U.S. citizen living in Taiwan can register to vote by coming to the American Citizens Services Section of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT). AIT will provide a Registration Card to obtain an Absentee Ballot, a pamphlet describing specific voting instructions, and a photocopy of instruction specific to the state in which the voter is registering.

Since time is short, the sooner voters register, the better their chances of receiving their ballots on time. AIT recommends that Registration Cards be mailed by October 4. If you have any questions, you may call AIT at 2709-2000, extension 2306. DHL is also offering a free courier service for Absentee Ballots. The voters can drop off their ballots at American Institute in Taiwan (Taipei & Kaohsiung Offices); or Taipei American School; or the nearest DHL office. The drop-off period is from October 2 to November 1, 2000.

Please remember that Absentee Ballots must be received at the registrar’s office no later than the Election Day, November 7.
