DOD/OS RIN: 0790-AK90 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: Federal Voting Assistance Program 

This regulatory action amended current policy and procedures for the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP). The FVAP assists overseas service members and other overseas citizens to exercising their voting rights by serving as a critical resource to successfully register to vote. This amendment to FVAP requires Federal agencies to enter into Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with the DoD to provide accurate, nonpartisan voting information and assistance to ensure military and overseas voters understand their voting rights, how to register and apply for an absentee ballot, and how to return their absentee ballot successfully. This amendment supports a recommendation of the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. DoD is publishing a final rule at a later date to finalize the amendments.
