Who We Are

Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We strive to provide Americans abroad a Democratic voice in our government and elect Democratic candidates by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Democrats Abroad has 41 country committees throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These country committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. Our members live in more than 190 countries around the globe and vote in every state and Congressional district in the U.S.

Democrats Abroad is recognized as a "state" Party by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and is represented on the DNC by eight voting members, as well as at the quadrennial Democratic National Convention.

Our online voter registration tool - votefromabroad.org - makes it easy to request a ballot and vote absentee from any place on the planet.

    Democrats Abroad Participate in Global Marches and Vigils

    Over the weekend of January 20 - 21, 2017, Democrats Abroad members joined numerous groups in marches, vigils, and rallies in solidarity with the Women's March on Washington and events to Thank President Obama for his time in office.  We are thrilled by how many people came out to participate. Thousands of marchers around the world came out to stand for democracy from the tip of the Southern Hemisphere to the most northern climes. Many Democrats Abroad members and alumni also joined the Women's March on Washington this weekend.  Below is a list of the Democrats Abroad events and events with group participation of our members sorted by date and country.

    NC Governor Elected with Help from the Overseas Vote

    Incumbent GOP governor Pat McCrory conceded to Roy Cooper this week, almost a month after the November 8 election. Cooper's win, made possible by Democrats abroad votes, is an important victory for the Democratic Party “There is no doubt that overseas votes helped put Cooper over the top,” said Katie Solon, International Chair of Democrats Abroad. “He won by roughly 10,000 votes, fewer than the 11,000 civilian votes we helped send back to North Carolina.” Democrats Abroad conducted effective outreach to all of its Tar Heel members, informing them of the deadlines and processes necessary to cast their ballots from overseas. Social media advertising delivered our GOTV message to North Carolinians around the world, so that they could make their voice count in what was a close and divisive gubernatorial race.  North Carolina has attracted national attention in recent years for its conservative legislation. This includes its House Bill 2, which limits LGBT rights and denies transgender people access to bathrooms, and a 2013 voter identification law that was struck down this year by a federal appeals court for its “discriminatory intent.”  Cooper’s victory is a positive indication for needed political change in North Carolina. It also demonstrates the importance of the overseas vote in effecting the balance of power.
