DAUK: You Should be Proud


How sweet it is!

And how important.

I just heard the returns from Virginia and California in the Presidential race and from New Hampshire and North Carolina in the Senate races. We are watching unfold before our eyes a banner night for Democrats!

All the learned analyses will come in time. Preferably after we all get some sleep! But for now, at this moment of great import for our country, let us celebrate a well-earned and historic victory.

Let us celebrate. And let us be thankful.

Election Day Message from the DAUK Chair


And now we wait.

It has been a long, exhausting—but exhilarating—campaign. And now, our country—yearning for new leadership, for an end to the failures at home and abroad of the last eight years and facing an unparalleled economic crisis—waits for the voter’s verdict.

And we wait—with both hope and positive anticipation.

May Still be Time to Postmark Your Ballot

Some States have late deadlines for receipt of ballots as long as they are postmarked on Election Day.

   1. Ballot Return Dates listed here: http://www.democratsabroad.org/registration_dates

   2. If you have registered to vote and have not received your absentee ballot, you may still have time to return your ballot (see registration dates link above), then complete the Federal Write in Absentee Ballot (FWAB) now. Checklist here: http://www.democratsabroad.org/node/7117

Didn’t receive your ballot? Use the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot / Evidence of Mailing from Outside the US


If you have registered to vote and requested your absentee ballot and still have not received your ballot, vote with a Federal Write in Absentee Ballot (FWAB). If you are from Arizona, Iowa, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Oregon, South Carolina or Washington state, the FWAB can both register you to vote and act as a voted ballot. Check your state’s voter registration deadline at http://www.democratsabroad.org/registration_dates

Vote for Your Senator and Representative!


Remember, every seat in the U.S. House of Representatives and one-third of our Senate seats are up for election this year. Those are federal elections in which we Democrats Abroad can vote and really have an impact. Whether you use the state ballot or the FWAB, it is important that you vote for those offices too.

Political Speakeasy: THIS week/Next Week!

Please note that we request an RSVP to attend most events (unless indicated otherwise), and you should expect a confirmation email within a few days. If you have to cancel, please let us know in advance. This helps DAUK with check in, space required, and confirms that our email invitations and website are working!

Our regularly scheduled Speakeasies are a chance to meet like-minded Americans, have a drink, talk politics, or just make new friends. Speakeasies are informal and held throughout the country, usually once a month. Drop by and join us - and bring a friend!
