Midterm elections don't get as much coverage as presidential elections, and there's a definite perception that voting "down ballot" doesn't matter.
However, every two years all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are on the ballot, as are one-third of the Senate seats (34 this year). In 2022, there are 36 gubernatorial elections, 30 lieutenant gubernatorial elections, and 27 Secretaries of State, among the 307 state executive races in 44 states.
Join DA Basel leaders and members as we discuss why we're voting this year, and why we'll be sure to vote in those state and local races!
This event will immediately follow our October chapter meeting. Come for either event, or both!
We will have a printer 🖨️, paper 📄, pens 🖊️, envelopes ✉️, and glue on site, so if you need to print or prepare your ballot, we can help!
Please note: We need to give an estimated headcount to The Auld Dubliner, so your RSVP is highly encouraged!

The wonderful thing about Democrats Abroad is the passion of its members. Here we are, thousands of miles from where most of us grew up, building a community and working for a better future. I'm proud to be a part of that community and to have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded people. People who are putting in the time and energy to ensure that those we elect are the individuals most committed to and capable of improving the lives of all Americans. As a person who has benefited many times from Democratic legislative policies like healthcare for low income families and publicly funded grants for college tuition, I know just how critical it is that we win and secure a majority for the left at every level of government.
For years I worked on campaigns for Democratic candidates at every level, and now I study democratic systems to better understand how representation can change and improve. I'm thrilled to be putting that knowledge and experience to good use with DA Switzerland.
