ABOUT DEMOCRATS ABROAD
Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We strive to provide Americans abroad a Democratic voice in our government and elect Democratic candidates by mobilizing the overseas vote.
Democrats Abroad has 55 country committees throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These country committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. Our members live in more than 190 countries around the globe and vote in every state and Congressional district in the U.S.
Democrats Abroad is recognized as a "state" party by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and is represented on the DNC by eight voting members, as well as at the quadrennial Democratic National Convention.
Our online voter registration tool - votefromabroad.org - makes it easy to request a ballot and vote absentee from any place on the planet.
ABOUT DEMOCRATS ABROAD SWITZERLAND (DACH)
Democrats Abroad Switzerland is the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in Switzerland.
We strive to help Americans connect with fellow citizens living across the 26 Cantons of the Swiss Federation and remain active in U.S. politics. Living in a unique nation of expats in which resident foreigners comprise 23% of the population, DA Switzerland provides a vital social and political link for American citizens staying for a short period as well as those here for the long term.
Our mission is to deliver critical votes for Democrats in U.S. federal elections as well as serving as unofficial U.S. ambassadors, communicating global perspectives to Washington D.C., to our hometowns, and our local Swiss communities.
