SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), Standard Form 186 (SF– 186); OMB Control Number 0704–0502. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to fulfill the requirement of the Uniformed and Overseas Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA), 46 U.S.C. 1973ff wherein the Secretary of Defense is to prescribe the Federal write-in absentee ballot for absent uniformed service voters and overseas voters in general elections for Federal office. The Department of Defense, Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness), Federal Voting Assistance Program, revised the SF 186, Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot and SF 186A, Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (Electronic) to comply with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Annual Burden Hours: 300,000. Number of Respondents: 1,200,000. Responses per Respondent: 1. Average Burden per Response: 15 minutes. Frequency: On occasion. Respondents are UOCAVA citizens who desire to vote in a Federal election but did not receive an absentee ballot from their State of residency with enough time to vote and return it. The information provided by these citizens is used by the States to determine if the citizen is a resident of a jurisdiction within that State, has previously requested an absentee ballot (when applicable) and therefore eligible for the enclosed ballot to be counted. In States that allow the form to be used as a voter registration form, the information provided is used by the States to PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 determine if the citizen is a resident of a jurisdiction within that State, and therefore eligible to vote within that jurisdiction and to provide absentee ballots to these citizens for Federal elections held within each calendar year. This form is mandated by 42 U.S.C 1973ff. The Department of Defense does not receive, collect nor maintain any data provided on the form by these citizens; this data is collected and maintained by the individual States. The burden in the collection of this data resides in the individual States. If the form is not provided, UOCAVA citizens would not have access to the emergency backup ballot and thus, may be disenfranchised from their right as a U.S. citizen to participate in the electoral process. The previous edition of this form is dated 08–2013. The form had been updated for usability and consistency. The most significant changes to the form were the addition of the Agency Disclosure Statement and Block 2 classification options. Comments are invited on the usability of the SF 186, Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot. Interested parties should locate the PDF form in the docket where it is available for download and testing.
