Welcome to Democrats Abroad EMEA!

   

Welcome to Democrats Abroad EMEA!

There is a good chance you're seeing this page because you are a member of Democrats Abroad in the Europe, Middle East, & Africa region, but the country where you live does not (yet?) have a Country Committee. There are currently 26 countries in the EMEA region with Country Committees.

These Country Committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. Our members -- people just like you -- live in more than 190 countries around the globe and vote in every state and Congressional district in the U.S.

Are you interested in how to get more involved where you live?
Get in touch with us today!

Ballot Assistance Events all over the region

From March 3 (Super Tuesday) to March 10, Americans all over the world will vote in the Global Presidential Primary run by Democrats Abroad. With about 200 locations worldwide, they will cast ballots in person, at polling places where they live. In many, many more places, they will cast ballots remotely by sending their vote via email or post.

You can easily help people in neighborhood or city cast their ballots and learn about Democrats Abroad by hosting a Ballot Assistance Event (BAE). A BAE is a publicized event held at your convenience between March 3 and March 10, where you provide instructions to Americans on how to make sure their vote counts––both this March and in November. 
There's very little to prepare, and it is a great chance to build on the excitement around the primaries. Send a message to rvc-emea@democratsabroad.org to get in touch with the EMEA Regional Team and learn more.
