DA Toronto (DATO) is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada.

We help US citizens vote in US elections through voter registration and keeping people informed on key issues. We also have lots of opportunities to volunteer with our Get Out the Vote efforts!

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.

Past Toronto events include Women's Marches, Tax Seminars, Fourth of July parties, Thanksgiving dinners, Election and Debate Watch parties, voter registration events and pub meet-ups.  We are active in-person and online as much as possible.  Please check our Events page and News page for more information.

We also post voter and event information as well as current political news on social media. Please follow us on Instagram and our Facebook page and share!

If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad Toronto, please contact us.

Democratically yours,
