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.

    Democrats Abroad denounces Senate Tax Bill

    Democrats Abroad firmly stands against the Senate Tax Bill. It is grossly irresponsible of Republicans to ignore the needs of the vast majority of Americans — including middle and working class families at home and abroad — in exchange for a tax giveaway for the “donor class.” This is a sham tax plan that cuts taxes for the wealthy and well-connected; slashes tax rates for big business who already pay far below the marginal rate; worsens inequality; slows economic growth; blows out the budget deficit by a trillion dollars; and positions Congressional Republicans to make drastic reductions in federal programs that support millions of Americans, including the nation’s most vulnerable.

    Holiday Happy Hour with the Diversity Caucus

    Come celebrate the holidays with the Diversity Caucus!

    Next Wednesday, December 13th, we will be meeting from 6:30 on at Cuba Compagnie in the 11th for happy hour drinks. Given all the political turmoil and chaos coming from the Trump administration and the Republican party we will have plenty to discuss but hopefully we can find happier topics to chat about…

    Other than the cost of drinks there is no charge for this event (but of course we will be accepting donations).

    We would love to see as many of your beautiful faces as possible!
