DA Hamilton-Burlington Leadership:
Welcome to Democrats Abroad
DA Hamilton-Burlington is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events - we have events planned throughout the year, and encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch.
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.
Join our chapter Facebook group here to share info and opinion and keep up with our activities. If you have any questions or suggestions or would like to help Democrats Abroad reach U.S. citizens in our area, please contact us.
