Democrats Abroad Sweden – 2024 Annual General Meeting

Democrats Abroad Sweden will be having its annual general meeting on Saturday, January 13, 2024 from 1:00 - 5:00 pm in Stockholm and online (WebEx)Please RSVP for the link and location. 

Democrats won down-ballot across several states in special elections last November. While this gives us some hope for the upcoming general election this year, we have a lot of work to do to make sure Democratic voters abroad request and submit their ballots and do their part to defend democracy at home. At this year's annual general meeting, we will plan local in-person voting locations for the Global Presidential Primary in March, offer training opportunities for phone-banking and raise funds to support these activities. Please join us to be part of these plans -- and get to know your fellow Democrats abroad!
