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 42 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.

    Holiday Get-Together in Lübeck

    THE LüBECK PRECINCT INVITES YOU TO A HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE ON DECEMBER 16—  

    JOIN US FOR A HOLIDAY GET-TOGETHER AND POLITICAL DISCUSSION SESSION

     

    The Lübeck Precinct cordially invites all Democrats Abroad Members and guests to an afternoon coffee and political discussion followed by a visit to the medieval Advent Market.  We know how hard it is for members living outside of Hamburg, especially points further north to attend events in the city, so this meeting will take place in the beautiful town of Lübeck. Hamburgian members are encouraged to attend as well in order to strengthen the connection to the precincts whose potential might otherwise remain untapped.

    Besides enjoying home-baked cookies, we will talk about the upcoming AGM, voting rights, and net neutrality. We would like to involve you in planning for the Democrats Abroad Germany General Meeting (AGM) to be held in Hamburg February 23-25, 2018 where the main focus will be on refining get out the vote strategies for the Mid-term elections in November.  Our brainstorming in Lübeck will revolve around questions such as:  Where are the Democrats one year after the election?  What do we stand for, and what are the beliefs that define us as a party?  How to better communicate this?  Suggestions for campaign slogans? How to learn to talk to the opposition and to reach out to disaffected non-voters?  Questions about voting rights and how to vote from abroad will also be answered.  We will show you how to contact your representative regarding the preservation of net neutrality. 

    Please bring your ideas and your friends and join us afterward to continue the discussion over a Glühwein at the nearby historic Christmas Market in the Marienkirchenhof.
