United Kingdom

Democrats Abroad United Kingdom (DAUK) is the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. We have many activities throughout the year, including speakeasies, film screenings, panel discussions, voter registration events, one of the largest Independence Day Picnics outside of the United States, and much more. 

If you are a U.K.-based American and would like to get involved, first join Democrats Abroad (it's free!) so you'll hear about all of our activities. 

We look forward to meeting you!

    New State Committees Initiative Launched

    We may be an ocean away from the U.S.A, but there are still many ways we can get involved and make a political difference. DAUK invites you to join our new state committees project, which will focus on voter outreach and engagement on a state-by-state basis. 

    Space for our March 9 meeting for the first states, Virginia and New Jersey, is now full, but additional state committees will follow. 

    State committees will conduct research, manage voter outreach, plan events, and develop social media and communications plans. We are looking for leaders who want to make a difference and play a part in shaping the future of our nation. State committees are going to play a crucial role in getting out the vote in the midterm elections in 2018. Now is the time to get organized! If you would like to get involved, please email states@democratsabroad.org.uk.
