Though midterm elections in the U.S. are less than a week away, some voters still have time to register to vote.

Nineteen states have registration still open, waive registration requirements or offer ways to expedite sending in the required Federal Post Card Application and ballots.

The states are: Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Each state has different rules on whether registering and casting ballots can be done via e-mail or fax. A detailed listing of requirements by state is listed on www.fvap.gov/pubs/primarycal.html.

The Nov. 7 elections include 33 U.S. Senate races, 36 gubernatorial contests, and every member of the U.S. House of Representatives, along with hundreds of state- and county-level races. Some voters also face referendums.

Overseas troops, civilians and families who believe they are registered to vote but have not received a ballot packet should contact election officials in the States as soon as possible to make sure they are eligible to participate.
