    Support Democrats Abroad's Global Campaign to

    "Get Out the Vote"

    Over 9 million Americans live outside of the United States. Democrats Abroad is working to ensure that as many as possible vote in November, and that Democrats win up and down the ballot. 
    We are phoning members, running social media ads, and mailing potential voters in order to win in November.
    And our Get Out the Vote campaigns work. In 2016, the number of Americans abroad who voted was 50% higher than in 2012 and in 2018, the number of voters tripled compared to 2014.
    We CAN make the difference, but we need YOUR help. Please make a donation today to fund our Global Get Out the Vote campaign.
