Victoria

Welcome to Democrats Abroad Victoria!

BC legislature

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.

Please check our Events page and News page for more information about these events as well as notices of future events.

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!
