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 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.

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 - - makes it easy to request a ballot and vote absentee from any place on the planet.

    Take Back Congress 2 Global Town Hall


    Join Democrats Abroad for  the second "Take Back Congress" Global Town Hall (by video conference) on Friday, October 21,  beginning at 1:30 PM EDT (Washington DC time). This is the fourth in the 2016 series of Global Town Halls with Democrats Abroad. We will be hearing from - and asking questions of - Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate and House - and we will hear about our efforts to Take Back Congress.  

    So please join us - RSVP Below.  Hurry, as space on the video-conference is limited. 
    The Webinar will allow participants to join starting 1:15 PM EDT.

    We will hear House and Senate candidates talk about how their campaigns are going and how the 2016 election looks in their state - and they will answer questions from participants.   

    Here's the lineup for the Global Town Hall as it stands. You can check back on this for updates on speakers and other information and to RSVP. (This discussion is off the record and not open to the press)

    Jim Barksdale,  the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Georgia, is in a uphill battle against incumbent Republican Johnny Isakson - in a traditionally red state that we are working hard to turn blue for Hillary Clinton and Jim Barksdale. 

    State Senator Morgan Carroll is the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House seat from  Colorado's 6th Congressional District. She is running against Republican incumbent Mike Coffman, but the polls are in her favor in a key race if the Democrats are going to take back the House.  

    State Senator Gail Schwartz, the Democratic candidate for the U.S House seat from Colorado's 3rd Congressional District, which covers the Western Slope and part of southern Colorado, is running a close campaign against incumbent Scott Tipton.  She and State Senator Carroll are fighting for every vote in what is sure to be a battleground state in the Presidential race.  

    And others to be confirmed.

    And special videos produced for U.S. voters overseas from:

    Senator Michael Bennett - the freshman Senator is running for re-election in  Colorado.

    Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro - the 25-year veteran from Connecticut's 3rd Congressional District with a special message for Italian-American voters and Americans in Italy.

    Jamie Raskin -the candidate for the House from Maryland's 8th Congressional District  - and a former Democrats Abroad member.

    AND: A special message from former Vice President Al Gore about the climate crisis and the 2016 elections, made especially for Americans abroad. If you haven't seen it, you will want to tune in.  

    Please join us for all or part of the Town Hall on the 21st.  Remember, we are Stronger Together - and Together we will win the White House and Take Back Congress.

    And stay tuned, there will be another Global Town Hall on October 24 (9 AM EDT) with special guest George Takei - and others. So mark your calendars for that one as well.
