Who We Are

Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We strive to provide Americans abroad a Democratic voice in our government and elect Democratic candidates by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Democrats Abroad has 42 country committees throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These country committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. Our members live in more than 190 countries around the globe and vote in every state and Congressional district in the U.S.

Democrats Abroad is recognized as a "state" party by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and is represented on the DNC by eight voting members, as well as at the quadrennial Democratic National Convention.

Our online voter registration tool - votefromabroad.org - makes it easy to request a ballot and vote absentee from any place on the planet.

    Watch the Film Legalize Equality

    The Equal Rights Amendment resolution passed unanimously in Tokyo where we committed to do whatever we can to help get the ERA ratified.  See the resolution here.

    Watch the video "Legalize Equality."  This 30-minute video gives an excellent overview of the Equal Rights Amendment and why it is critical to be ratified.  

    You can watch the video until 31 December 2019.

    Feel free to share the link and password to DA members that want to view it.  However, please do NOT post the link and password on the internet in any way.  Only Democrats Abroad has access for this private screening and we need to honor this special access given by Equal Means Equal and Heroica Films.

    Welcome to SPRING Happy Hour in Phnom Penh

    We had such a fantastic happy hour in February, we want to get together again in March to celebrate the coming of SPRING.

    Please join Democrats Abroad Cambodia for a casual happy hour on Thursday 21 March at 6:00 PM at Java Creative Cafe in Toul Tom Poung (53 Street 468).  
    Feel free to bring along your friends and family, Americans and others alike!
    While we enjoy some good food and drink at Java, we will continue to build on our fellowship from February, including talking about how we can start preparing for next year's elections.  It seems so far away, but the primaries will be here before we know it!
    We especially would love to see those of you who are interested in re-building Democrats Abroad Cambodia.  We have some work to do this year, and we can't do it without your help.  If you have any questions about how you can help, contact us and we will be in touch.
    We hope to see you at Java.
