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.

    Midterm Elections FAQ

    Midterm elections may not take place until November 6, but for voters abroad, the time to request a ballot is now. This year, America will elect 435 House of Representatives, 34 Senators, 36 Governors, thousands of others to state and local positions, and decide the outcome of critical issues on some ballots as well. In many cases, votes from abroad will be THE margin of victory, which means it's more important than ever to ensure your vote is counted. Unsure about your voter status? Wondering when to expect a ballot? We’ve got you covered.

    Navigating the World of Post-Truth Politics

    Democrats Abroad Switzerland in Zürich is very excited to welcome Alexandra Cirone, PhD, to speak to us about how to navigate a world of post-truth politics!

    What are we to do in a political environment where objective facts are ignored in favor of appeals to emotional or personal beliefs? Where fear trumps fact? Who can we trust in a world where partisanship has become so strong that facts are sacrificed to political expediency and the media has sacrificed truth in favor of balance?

    If these questions trouble you, then please join us at the ETH Zürich's Institute of Science, Technology, and Policy on Wednesday, March 21st at 6:30 PM to learn more about how this murky post-truth world works and what we can do to navigate it.

    All are welcome to attend, but DA Switzerland would gladly accept donations from American citizens in attendance in support of this event and our voter outreach efforts.

    About the speaker: Dr. Cirone received her BA in political science from the University of Chicago, MA and M.Phil in political science from Columbia University, and successfully defended her PhD in political science at Columbia University in June 2017. Her focus was Comparative Politics and Qualitative Methods. Prior to pursuing her PhD, she served as Research Manager at Harvard Kennedy School's Evidence for Policy Design. She served as a pre-doc Research Fellow and is currently serving as a post-doc Research Fellow at the London School of Economics in their Political Economy Group. This fall, she will head back to the United States to be an assistant professor in the Government department at Cornell University. We are thrilled that she can share her experience with us before she departs for the US.
