The Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) is a form provided by federal law to permit members of the U.S. armed forces and merchant marines, their dependents and U.S. citizens abroad to vote early by mail and, if necessary, to temporarily register to vote.


You are eligible to vote early with an FPCA if you are qualified to vote in Texas and you are:

  • A member of the U.S. armed forces, their spouse, or a dependent
  • A member of the U.S. merchant marines, their spouse, or a dependent
  • A U.S. citizen domiciled in Texas but temporarily living outside the territorial limits of the United States
