Voting Assistance Officers

As a Voting Assistance Officer, your mission is to ensure that every Sailor, their eligible family members and other eligible personnel are afforded every opportunity to register and vote absentee.

All Voting Assistance Officers are required to complete the mandatory VAO training and should become thoroughly familiar with the VAO-specific information found on the Federal Voting Assistance Program's website:
