Military and Overseas Voters in 2012

Return to Election Data Dispatches.

At its recent summit, the Overseas Vote Foundation released its fifth post-election survey of military and overseas voters.

More than 13,500 voters in 160 countries participated in the survey.

Findings about the 2012 election include:

  • The most common obstacle to completing the voter registration process, cited by 30 percent of respondents, was missing the registration deadline.
  • The number of voters who received their ballot electronically increased significantly: 52 percent of respondents in 2012 compared with 22 percent in 2010.
  • By October 15, slightly more than 40 percent of respondents had returned their ballots.
  • Fifteen percent of respondents returned ballots electronically—either by fax, email, or uploading their ballot onto their state’s official election website.
