Prague, Jan 2 (CTK) – The Embassy of the USA in Prague has called on the Americans living in the Czech Republic to register for postal vote in the autumn elections in the USA.
Along with the presidential election, in which President Donald Trump will run again, the USA will hold the vote for the Congress on November 3.
Those interested in the postal vote may be registered in the electronic way. Then the authorities will send them the ballot papers. They can be cast personally at the embassy which will send them by diplomatic mail to the USA or sent to the U.S. local authorities at the costs of the voting person.
The postal vote is possible by October 12 at the latest.
The postal vote also covers the party primary elections in the individual U.S. states in the first half of the year.
The Embassy of the USA notes that the postal vote will be of major importance for the outcome of the elections.
In a number of contests for the Congress posts, the difference between the winning and second candidates is smaller than the number of the ballot papers sent by Americans from abroad.
Unlike the USA, the Czech Republic does not enable postal vote from abroad.
