Welcome to Democrats Abroad Calgary!
It’s too late to drop off your ballot at the Embassy or Consulate, and questionable timing if sending by postal mail but don’t despair. DemsAbroad Canada has enrolled in the UPS Member Benefits Program to offer an alternative, with up to 50% savings off published shipping rates*. This is an ongoing savings benefit – it does not expire on Nov. 3rd!
DA Calgary is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada. Calgary has a vast multitude of US expats and extended stay workers. Here at Democrats Abroad we seek to bring together all who wish to stay engaged in their American right to vote, always of importance but now more than ever.
We sponsor fun and informative events to bring like minded people together for support, sharing and solid information.
In 2016, only 33,000 Americans living in Canada cast a ballot in the General Election. With 15-days remaining, 75% of the members of DemsAbroad Canada have engaged with requesting a ballot in this critical election. Take a moment to request your ballot to be a part of the blue tsunami from Canada at VoteFromAbroad.org.
Hundreds of American citizen volunteers across Canada are working to educate all eligible U.S. voters on their right to vote and how to get their ballots to vote in every election. That includes Canadians who were born in the U.S. and those born in Canada to an American parent(s), who therefore have the right to vote. Americans living in Canada CAN deliver the difference in close elections.
Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot.
