The Basel chapter of Democrats Abroad Switzerland is pleased to announce our upcoming elections. We hope that you will attend to meet and/or reconnect with local Dems Abroad, show your support for the nominees and vote for the candidates of your choice. We need to have a quorum for the elections to be official, so please come, or vote by proxy if you can't attend (more information below).

DA Switzerland is made up of volunteers working together to keep Americans living abroad informed and connected with the political process and to make it easier to vote from abroad. We invite you to become involved in Basel chapter activities and political activism. We are expecting a very exciting and busy next term, resisting the Republican administration in 2019 and voting in primaries and elections in 2020. Come help us elect Democrats!
We thank those that have come forward to present themselves as candidates. To see more on each candidate, please see here.
We have nominations for all offices except secretary, and if you are interested in running for this or any other position, you still can. We will entertain nominations from the floor. If you would like to run, please let the Nominations Committee know at firstname.lastname@example.org

Americans who are Democrats Abroad members by Saturday, March 30, may vote. Please register to attend by March 31 at https://goo.gl/forms/ToLwSB2Kjrtj8Hy22
There are two ways to vote:
In person voting: Printed ballots will be distributed at the meeting.
Vote by proxy: Request a proxy form via the registration form at https://goo.gl/forms/ToLwSB2Kjrtj8Hy22. Proxies must be in writing, but the giver may sign, scan and email it to the proxy holder, who should then bring a printed copy to the meeting. Any voter at the meeting may hold at most two proxies.
At the meeting, the four offices will be elected one by one, in the order shown above. Nominations may be made from the floor or as write-in candidates. Candidates who are not elected in their chosen position may nominate themselves for other positions. All candidates will be given two to three minutes to address the members. Up to three questions from the audience will be allowed (per candidate).
