Brazil

Hello and Welcome to Democrats Abroad Brazil!

We’re one of 48 country committees that comprise Democrats Abroad, the official Democratic Party arm for more than 9 million Americans living outside of the United States.

If you’re an American citizen residing in Brazil (including those of you who may have dual citizenship and have even spent the better part of your life here), are 18 years of age on or before the date of the next federal election, you have the right to vote in U.S. state and federal elections.

Read more to see why YOU might want to Join Democrats Abroad.

The aim of Democrats Abroad is to provide Americans abroad a Democratic voice in our government and elect Democratic candidates by mobilizing the overseas vote.  Voting overseas (especially depending on your state) may seem at times cumbersome and downright frustrating.  Then there’s the mystery as to whether your vote was actually received and/or tabulated, and that’s not even considering the campaign currently underway by some states to make mail-in and absentee voting even more trying!

DABR is here not only to assist with the voter registration process through VoteFromAbroad.org, we can also provide other information, individual assistance and tools to help you cast your absentee ballots from Brazil. For US Embassy & Consulates in Brazil, in particular concerning citizen services with regard to voting, please consult their page for more information.

But Democrats Abroad Brazil is much more than this!          Read more here!

DABR is self-funded, utilizing all funds raised to support our get out the vote efforts. We are very grateful to all of our donors for their generous support!
