Who We Are

Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the 9 million 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 45 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 200 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.

    We answered the call of history

    Statement from Democrats Abroad Global Chair, Julia Bryan"We answered the call of history. We met the moment. Democracy and hope, truth and justice did not die on our watch but thrived." Thank you to the thousands of Democrats Abroad volunteers and voters around the world who answered the call of history, who stood up to tyranny, and who helped ensure that hundreds of thousands of Americans abroad could use the most important tool democracy provides us - our vote. You helped make this happen and we only wish we could be together on this momentous day as we raise a toast to our new President and Vice President, to Democracy and hope, truth and justice.

    Stand with Democracy

    Today should be a day of congratulations and joy - we’ve won two remarkable senate races, helped turn Georgia blue, and ensured a Democratic Congress that will help our President pass crucial reforms. We are tremendously grateful to the many DA volunteers who helped win these elections, and proud of our Georgia voters who went the extra mile to make sure their ballots arrived and were counted.  But today we are also shocked and angry. And we're ready to take action. Yesterday, armed terrorists stormed the Capitol in an attempted coup incited by Donald Trump and his Republican cronies. In the midst of the rioting, Trump encouraged the mob further, endangering our Senators and Representatives, the Capitol, and the very process that promotes a peaceful transition of power. Few rioters were arrested, and the person who fomented this terror attack remains in highest office, endangering not only those around him but democracy in the US and across the world.  Despite this attack on our institutions, democracy prevailed - our Congressional members stood up to the terrorists and certified the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris early this morning.   Democrats Abroad is proud to support our leaders in Congress calling for Trump's removal, and demands that all Senators and Representatives work to remove Trump from office immediately. We ask that you also take action by calling your Congressional representatives. We have prepared a brief call script here plus contact information for your Congressional representatives. Stay safe and thank you for standing up for democracy.
