    State Team Year End Review and Look Ahead

    You're invited to the State Team 'Year End Review and Look Ahead' to look at the successes and possibilities of the Democrats Abroad state-focussed outreach. Over the last several months, multiple teams have formed representing the interests of overseas voters from key states. We'll look back at the formation of this movement and the various activities of the different state teams. We will also strategize how to make an impact in the 2022 election cycle and win elections up and down the ballot.

    For more information, have a look at this article by one of our Ohioans Abroad volunteers.
