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 42 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.

    Women's March Anniversary Events

    March to the Ballot Box!

    On the first day of the Trump Administration, the Women's March on Washington sent a bold message seen and heard around the world.

    The Democrats Abroad Global Women’s Caucus and DA groups across the globe are organizing celebrations and voter registration/membership drives throughout the entire anniversary weekend of January 20-21, 2018.

    The purpose of these events is to rekindle the excitement and confidence that the 2017 Women’s March generated and channel that energy to voting in the 2018 Mid-term Elections.  These events will help turn marchers and resisters into voters and members!

    Our message is “keep marching to the ballot box!"

    Our mood is celebratory, defiant, constructive, and positive.

    Join us  as we participate in  commemorative events around the world and set the tone for resistance in this all important election year!

    Power to the Polls - Shanghai

    On January 21, 2018, thousands of women, femmes and allies will come together in Las Vegas, Nevada, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March and to launch our collective 2018 Women’s March agenda: #PowerToThe Polls.

    We in Shanghai, CHINA are organizing a 2018 Absentee Ballot Request and Voter Registration Driveon Sunday January 21 for the Women's March anniversary weekend. 

    From the Women’s March to the Women’s Convention, we’ve seen how powerful we are when we gather together, share space and lift each other up. While the official Women's March anniversary event will take place in Nevada, Women’s March Chapters are organizing exciting state-specific anniversary events throughout the anniversary weekend, from marches to legislative actions to community events to voter registration drives.

    Together, we will show this administration that women are not backing down.

    Join Democrats Abroad China in Shanghai for the first anniversary of the Women's March.
