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 44 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.

    DA Responds to Trump's Threat to Disregard Election Results

    Statement from Julia Bryan, Global Chair of Democrats Abroad:  Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transition of power and respect the results of the general election must not be ignored.  This is a moment which transcends party or politics. We call on every member of Congress - Republican, Democrat and Independent- to speak up NOW and reject his comment.  We ask that these democratically elected leaders state clearly that they continue to support the United States electoral system. And that these leaders pledge to uphold the state certified results of the ballots cast by US citizens.

    Statement on Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Democrats across the world are devastated today by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg - our dearly beloved RBG. A light that we all looked to has been extinguished. A tireless champion of justice has been taken. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family and those touched personally by her loss. Justice Ginsburg was a pioneer and giant in law and civil rights. She pioneered jurisprudence which focused on breaking discrimination against women. Her career culminated with nearly thirty years as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court, where she served from 1993 until her passing last night after a long and hard fought battle against cancer. It is to the Supreme Court that we must immediately turn our attention. Her passing left a vacancy on the bench 6 weeks before the presidential election. In 2016 the Republicans determined that a new Supreme Court Justice shouldn't be seated in the midst of a presidential election - that the people of the United States should elect a president and that president should fill the vacant seat. But now the Republicans say the opposite. Vice President Joe Biden said last night, "Tonight, and in the coming days, we should be focused on the loss of Justice Ginsburg and her enduring legacy. But just so there is no doubt, let me be clear: The voters should pick a President, and that President should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg. This was the position that the Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were nearly nine months before the election. That is the position the United States Senate must take now, when the election is less than two months away. We are talking about the Constitution and the Supreme Court. That institution should not be subject to politics."
