DA Victoria will be hosting Voter Registration events at the same time as the Pop-Up Consulates. We'll be helping US citizens register to vote and to request their ballots for the 2018 Midterm Elections. Every overseas voter may vote in the upcoming elections! But overseas voters need to send in the form to request a ballot every calendar year in which they wish to vote. Voter registration is always nonpartisan; we provide voter registration support to every US citizen who requests help.
If you'd like to volunteer to help with DA Victoria's voter registration events, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Know other US citizens living in the area? The Pop-Up Consulate and the voter registration help is available for all US citizens, so please pass this information on to any other US citizens you know.

Welcome to Democrats Abroad Victoria!
DA Victoria and the Islands (DAVI) is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada.
We reach out to US citizens to encourage them to vote in US elections by helping them register to vote and keeping them informed on issues important to all of us. We also have lots of opportunities for anyone who wants to volunteer to help with our Get Out the Vote efforts!
Past DAVI events include the Women's Marches at Centennial Square, Tax Seminars, Fourth of July parties, Thanksgiving dinners, Election and Debate Watch parties, voter registration events, and pub meet-ups.
We also post voter and event information as well as current political news on social media. Please follow our Facebook page and SHARE the information!
