Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party organization for more than 8.7 million Americans living outside the United States.  It has the status of a ‘state’ in the Democratic Party, so is represented by voting members on the Democratic National Committee and has its own delegation to the Democratic National Convention.

    Upcoming Events

    Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 12:00 PM · 9 rsvps

    Dial and Dine


    We have good news for you! Our September events include one that allows you to take action in upcoming elections back home. 

    On September 23rd, join fellow DA members in Singapore for an afternoon of phone banking and phood. We'll call fellow DA members to make sure they are voting in their upcoming elections to put Democrats in seats. 

    It could evolve, but for now, we'll be focusing on the following races:

    1. New Jersey: The Governor and the entire state legislature are up for election on November 7.  Let’s elect Democrat Phil Murphy as Governor and a Democratic state legislature.

    Who is eligible to vote? Overseas voters who registered to vote as “intend to return” can vote in this election. 

    2. Virginia: The Governor and the full House of Delegates are up for election on November 7. Let’s elect Democrat Ralph Northam as Governor and a Democratic House of Delegates.

    Who is eligible to vote? Overseas voters can vote in these state elections - but if you’ve given up your VA residence, you’ll need to show that either you or your spouse are employed overseas.

    3. Florida: Special Election for Senate District 40. We'll be reaching out to those members who vote in Southwest Miami.

     

    Event Details:

    What: Dial and Dine
    When: Saturday, Sept. 23 from noon-3:00
    Where: 136 St. Patrick's Road #05-17, East Coast.
    How: Enter via St. Patrick's Road. By bus, go to East Coast Road, Ocean Apartments stop #: 92141

    We'll provide the food, but to make calls, you'll need to bring a laptop, an ear piece, and your favorite beverage to share.
