By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United States of America’s presidential elections will take place on November 3, 2020.
President Donald Trump secured the nomination from the Republican party and former Vice President Joe Biden was nominated by the Democratic party.
Both presidential candidates will engage in debates surrounding key issues around the USA.
There are thousands of Belizean-Americans closely following the 2020 Presidential elections.
Here are some interesting facts about the United States electoral process:
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, several scheduled events relating to the 2020 Presidential elections have been postponed.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act included money for states to increase mail-in voting. Trump and his campaign have strongly opposed mail-in-voting, claiming that it would cause widespread voter fraud, a belief that has been debunked by a number of media organizations.
The United States Embassy in Belize reminds all United States citizen voters in Belize that you can cast your vote in the 2020 elections by:
Go to the Federal Voting Assistance Program – FVAP website at https://www.fvap.gov/ and connect to your state’s voter portal to register to vote and request an absentee ballot
Add election dates and reminders to your calendar
Research the candidates and issues
Return your signed, completed ballot.
Some states allow you to return your completed ballot electronically and others do not.
If your state requires you to return paper voting forms or ballots to local election officials by mail, you can do so through international mail, professional courier service, or through the U.S. Embassy Belmopan Diplomatic Post Office (DPO).
The first debate between Trump and Biden is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29.
