Democrats Abroad Switzerland is the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in Switzerland.

We strive to help Americans connect with fellow citizens living across the 26 Cantons of the Swiss Federation and remain active in U.S. politics. Living in a unique nation of expats in which resident foreigners comprise 23% of the population, Democrats Abroad provides a vital social and political link for American citizens staying for a short period as well as those here for the long-term.

Our mission is to deliver critical votes for Democrats in U.S. Federal elections, as well as serving as unofficial U.S. ambassadors, communicating global perspectives to Washington D.C. and our hometowns and Swiss communities.

Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events – we have events planned throughout the year and encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch.
