    Be Sure to Request Your Absentee Ballot!

    Members of our Heidelberg Chapter at our GOTV (Get Out The Vote) table on Bismarckplatz. We helped some overseas Americans with information about requesting their absentee ballots, and we could request and print out a ballot request for someone right on site with our tablet and portable printer! Also, the chocolate chip cookies were a hit. Our next GOTV table is going to be at the Bunsendenkmal (Hauptstr. 47-51) on the pedestrian zone June 9th. Come on by and say hello. Oh, and if you have not done so already, please request your absentee ballot at www.votefromabroad.org !
