Hi I am a US citizen living in Sydney. I am registered in Arizona as a democrat. Do yo have any information on how I can change my affiliation to republican (if that is neccesary) and vote for Ron Paul in the AZ primary? Regards

Also, what's the easiest thing to link to on my websites to help other US citizens living in Australia (of which there are tens of thousands I'm told).

This will get his registration switched and get him registered, but he'll need to get an absentee ballot and I'm not sure how to do that:

He needs to use this link to re-register as a Republican online:

The deadline to register Republican is January 30.

After he re-registers as a Republican, he needs to contact his County Recorder's office and request an early ballot. He can find his County Recorder's contact info here:

As far as other US citizens living abroad, share this link:

You can find voter registration deadlines for all the states here:

Thanks guys. I've sent him tsai's info for now. The BlueRepublican site would just be a portal linking to that anyway I believe.

Great information to gather - but did you ask his permission before posting his name and email on a public forum?

Problem ...

The guy responded saying ...

Hi Anthony,

I followed the link but cant use the form because I am not currently an AZ resident and dont have an AZ drivers license. I am a dual citizen that has lived in Australia the last 25 years. Thanks for your help

He doesn't need a drivers license. He can use the last 4 digits of his social security number as an alternative. He doesn't need both.

Maybe have him call his state reps local office. Ours are very helpful.

Ok thanks. Sent. Now we'll see if this works.
