Americans abroad register to vote in the U.S. based on their U.S. last address (or their parent's last U.S. address if born abroad). Click here to find out more.
We strongly recommend signing up for an emailed ballot so you can print and return your ballot by mail as quickly as possible to meet the strict deadlines given delays to the global and US postal service. Better yet, send in a backup ballot now! Find out more by clicking here.
As part of our ongoing effort to engage Americans abroad in voting in U.S. elections, we have reached out to Democratic candidates to hear where they stand on American abroad issues.
Click on the race below to see the list of candidates running on your ballot paper and their answers to questions we asked them on taxation, Medicare portability, and the Social Security Windfall Elimination Provision.
If you are looking for answers to these questions for House or Senate Democratic candidates appearing on your ballot paper, but your state or district isn't listed, it means that we've either not received an answer or we've not reached out to the candidates yet. We have a small group of volunteers assisting with contacting candidates but not enough people to reach all the House and Senate races like we'd like to! If you'd like to help us get answers from candidates please contact us on [email protected] to lend a hand. It's super easy and a great exercise in democracy!
