If you need to send your election materials to your election official by fax but do not have access to a fax machine you can email them to fax@fvap.gov and FVAP will fax your election materials for you. The service is fax only: if your state accepts your election materials by email you should email them directly to your election official. FVAP will not transmit email to email transactions.
