    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: davictoriachapter@gmail.com

    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.
