Democrats Abroad Czech Republic kicked off the midterms last Saturday with our first registration event of the year. Combining registration with a cookie swap, members gathered together for wine, coffee and a tremendous variety of cookies.
While most attendees had not yet requested their ballots this year, we were all ready to get prepared for what all believe is a midterm year to remember. By the end of the night, more than half of the group had printed out their ballot requests and were ready to send them in to their local election offices back in the States.
We also discussed the most important messages to remind our American friends abroad:
1. Yes, we should all request our ballots each election year if we want to make sure our ballots are federally protected in case of a recount.
2. Yes, US House and US Senate races are federal elections and Americans abroad can and should vote in them.
The 2017 DACZ Annual meeting is coming up on March 28, 2017. Please find below statements from the candidates running for the DACZ Executive Committee.
And here's a link to the DACZ bylaws, with marked changes. We will be considering these changes during the meeting.
Join us this Tuesday at Cafe Indigoneba to register or request your ballot. It's never been more important to vote in a Congressional election, and you still have time to send your form in!
Deadlines are coming up soon though, so don't delay - come out this week and get the job done. Request a ballot, grab a beer (we're going to be trying out Indigoneba's famous pulled pork tacos too) and make sure you're set to vote this year.
