Message from U.S. Embassy re Voting


Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon Wardens,

I hope you are doing well and are excited about election season.  As we get closer to election day, we have been getting complaints from some U.S. Citizens stating that they are hearing that the Embassy is not accepting ballots after today, October 26th.  If you get questions about this, please let people know that the Embassy will accept all ballots delivered to the Embassy after October 26, 2016.  All ballots will be sent to the U.S. via the diplomatic pouch with transit time between Panama and the U.S. taking up to 7 days.   People should take into consideration this transit time along with the deadlines set by their home state for receiving ballots from abroad.   U.S. citizens can drop off an FPCA or completed ballot in person at the U.S. Embassy in Panama between 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and between 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on Friday. 

Thank you all once again for your service!

Best Regards,


Stephanie Espinal
