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.

    Mannheim Precinct Meeting Announcement

    We now have an official Democrats Abroad Mannheim Precinct and Precinct Captain! What is a DA Precinct you ask? It is a loosely organized extension of a Chapter, in this case the DA Heidelberg Chapter, that is meant to make Democrats Abroad more accessible to those of you who live farther away. So, if you live in the Mannheim area, come meet some of your fellow overseas Democrats on Wednesday 17th of January at Goldene Gans and see what it’s all about.  Daniel Hoever-Eckardt has volunteered to be the Mannheim Precinct Captain, so if you have any questions about the group, you can contact him at dag-mannheim@democratsabroad.org .
