BEIRUT: The United Sates called on Americans in Lebanon to register for the upcoming congressional elections due this fall, the embassy in Lebanon said.
The embassy said that in preparation for this November's general election, several U.S. voter registration drives will be held in Lebanon this summer, kicking off in Zahle Saturday.
All Americans 18 years old and above are eligible, the embassy said.
The hopeful voters are required to bring their current U.S. passport and the address where they last lived in the States, ideally the one that they used the last time they voted there.
The embassy said the registration site was the Monte Alberto Hotel & Restaurant in Zahle.
Registration will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., administered by American volunteers.
US Embassy personnel will be on-site to notarize the state registration cards that require it.
After the event, all registration forms will be couriered by the embassy back to the U.S., where they will be mailed to the various county registrar offices.
Elections for the United States Congress will be held on Nov. 4, with 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate along with all members of the House of Representatives up for election. There are also numerous state and local elections being held in November.
