Voter Registration Volunteer Training

Vote from Abroad

Help Get-Out-the-Vote from Abroad for 2016!

Democrats Abroad Switzerland started the Get-Out-the-Vote 2016 campaign by organizing a series of training sessions designed for volunteers who are considering participating in voter registration activities or those who would like to host an event. Our weekly sessions are conducted online for the most part, so participants from anywhere in Switzerland can join in – or anywhere in the world for that matter. We held a session in late July that was attended by Democrats Abroad members worldwide. 

The training presentation is intended to familiarize anyone with the basics involved ​in assisting voters with ballot requests, by reviewing the absentee ballot request and voting process, and discussing the unique challenges for overseas citizens. Training includes a review of available online resources, a discussion of what's involved in setting up a VFA table at an event, or hosting your own Voter Registration Drive.

We have three upcoming training sessions: this week we will have a live session on Thursday, August 25 in Coppet, Switzerland, just outside of Geneva (and easily accessible by train). We have two online sessions scheduled for the early evenings of Thursday, September 1 and Tuesday, September 6. We welcome anyone to attend, even if you've been registering voters for years, or you are just curious to learn more.

Our Get-Out-the-Vote 2016 efforts need people to make them work, so we encourage everyone to sign up for a training session now! Any questions? email vote (at)
