    Help US Citizens Vote From Australia!

    We are now in the final days of registering to vote for the November 3rd US Presidential election. We need YOUR help to reach every single Democrats Abroad member in Australia and remind them they need to register before the deadline.  Many of the people we have spoken to so far have either not realised or not remembered about requesting a ballot -- and they are very happy to get the reminder!
    Some numbers:
    >> August 1st is the recommended deadline that US citizens abroad return their Federal Post Card Application
    >> In June we made about 700 calls, leaving over 2700 members still to be telephoned to be sure they have requested their ballot
    >> That's 87 people who need to be called each day in July
    This is the most important thing Democrats Abroad Australia can be doing right now to vote Trump out of office - so let's get to work!
    If you've never phonebanked with Democrats Abroad before, join us on Wed 8 July at 6PM Sydney/Melbourne/Brisbane, 5.30 Adelaide, 4PM Perth where we'll show you the ropes. You can also drop in any time during this time to ask questions or just let us know how it's going.
    Time: Jul 8, 2020 06:00 PM Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
