January 23, 2014 Federal Post Card Application This year, the entire U.S. House of Representatives, a third of the U.S. Senate and 36 state governors will be elected. Do not miss out on your opportunity to take part. Visit FVAP.gov and use the online Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) assistant to help you complete the form, and find more information about the voting process, as well as your state's requirements and deadlines. To be sure you qualify to vote in this year's elections, it is recommend that you complete and submit a new one now. Be sure to update your mailing address, request a ballot and spread the word about upcoming elections. Personal Post Office Box Numbers Coming into effect by April 15, service members will be assigned individual box numbers that will continue to incorporate the nine digit zip code, Zip+4. The new system will expedite address changes, reduce cost to the military postal system, and improve service to military personnel. The change will not effect how you currently receive your mail; if personnel use a personal box or a mail orderly, they will continue with that method. Individuals will be informed of their new address by mail orderlies before Feb. 1. Please note that some service members will be required to change their shipping addresses for subscriptions and regular mail. All questions may be directed to mail orderlies or the post office.
