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?

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.
