DA Italy Milan Secretary

  • Vote in the 2020 Global Presidential Primary with Democrats Abroad in Italy!

    Democrats Abroad hold our own primary election and we send delegates to the Democratic Convention.  Voting via the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary is more powerful than voting through your state because the ratio of delegates to voters is less.  For example, approximately 25,000 voted in the Global Primary in 2008 compared to more than 150,000 who voted in Vermont (a similar number of delegates as DA).   So we want to make it easy for you to vote through the DA!   

    You can download your Primary ballot here  from our website.  Simply vote for your candidate,  sign & photograph (or scan it) and send it to the address provided  (or you can return it by snail mail).  DEADLINE: DA must receive your ballot before 12:00AM Pacific Standard Time on March 11, 2020.

    OR join like minded fellow democrats March 3rd to March 10th and either and cast your ballot at our Voting Centers or participate in our Ballot Assistance Events.   Join us in FlorenceMilan, Padova, Verona or Rome (you can only cast a ballot in the chapter where you reside).

    Voter requirements: you must be a US citizen abroad and 18 years of age by Nov 3, 2020. You must also be a member of Democrats Abroad* to vote via DA and you can only vote once!


    Spread the word, get your American friends to join so they can vote through Democrats Abroad.  WE ARE COUNTING ON YOU!

    Remember for the Presidential elections in November,  you must request an absentee ballot from your state in 2020: www.votefromabroad.org


    * Same-day registration allowed at Voting Center

  • DA Tax Team back in DC next week - Time to Call Congress!

    The DA Tax Team is back in Washington DC next week for meetings on Capitol Hill - our fifth and probably final Congressional Door Knock of 2019. We appreciate the members of the Taxation Task Force and thank them for the hard work to support tax reform for Americans abroad. A Special thanks to the chair of the Taskforce, Carmelan Polce, for her remarkable support in driving this important issue forward!

    We also want to thank all Democrats Abroad leaders who have supported the work of the Tax Task Force this year. Their help in pushing out Tax Team reports, updates and campaign guides is greatly valued and essential to our success in engaging Congress to enact the reforms so urgently needed by Americans abroad.

    We are delighted to see that many of our Residency Based Taxation (RBT) activists are getting responses from the members of Congress they are contacting. The responses are more than generic replies referencing taxation in the broadest sense. The responses indicate the problems and concerns of Americans abroad - bank lockouts, tax pressure on small businesses abroad and the cost and complexity of tax compliance - resonate. That's great news and a testament to the hard work of tax reform campaigners in all of our chapters and committees.

    Democrats Abroad asks all members once again to support a DA grassroots Congressional outreach campaign happening in tandem with next week's meetings. PLEASE SHARE WITH ALL AMERICANS ABROAD THIS GUIDE FOR CALLING AND WRITING TO CONGRESS ABOUT TAX REFORM FOR AMERICANS ABROAD.

    Please also this posting on the taxation taskforce blog about next week's meetings on your social media platforms.

    Orange Weekend (June 7-9)

    Friday, June 7th is National Gun Violence Awareness Day and Wear Orange Weekend is to show that Americans are unified in the effort to end gun violence.  Wear Orange weekend starts on Friday by wearing orange and sharing online.  Then, community events will be held throughout the weekend, all around the US.

    The color orange has a long and proud history in the gun violence prevention movement. Whether it's worn by hunters, Moms, or students across the country, orange honors the 100 lives cut short and the hundreds more wounded by gun violence every day. 

    Don't forget to wear the color orange on June 7th!
