Germany

Overseas voters often make the difference in close races! With nearly 16,000 members, we are one of the largest country committees of Democrats Abroad  the official Democratic Party arm for the more than nine million Americans living outside the United States. 

We are a 100% volunteer organization with a presence throughout Germany. Our mission is to provide Americans living in Germany a voice in our government and to elect Democrats by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Wherever you are in Germany, you can get involved today!

    Georgia US Senate Run-off Election 5 January 2021

     

    Elections were held for both of Georgia’s US Senate seats on November 3, 2020. Both of these races are going to Runoff elections, to be held on January 5, 2021, as no candidate received at least 50% of the vote. Democrats need to win both of these seats to have a majority in the Senate so we can have progress in America and the world.

    The two races are:

    • US Senate: Jon Ossoff (Democrat) versus David Perdue (Republican)

    • US Senate Special: Raphael Warnock (Democrat) versus Kelly Loeffler (Republican)

    Both US Senate races in Georgia are going to a run-off election on January 5th, 2021. Ballots will not be available until Nov 21, GA has said they would send out ballot even if the recount isn't finished.

    Zoom in Münster, Germany

    DA Münster/Osnabrück Book Club

    For this installment of our quarterly (Tri-annual?) Book Club, we will be tackling Kent Russell's "In the Land of Good Living: A Journey to the Heart of Florida." And why not? Florida is a state that we have been told for decades is about turn blue because of demographics. And yet, it remains a bastion of red. The book has been described as "a wickedly smart, funny, and irresistibly off-kilter account of an improbable thousand-mile journey on foot into the heart of modern Florida, the state that Russell calls America Concentrate." 

    RSVP for the Zoom link.
