    Voter Assistance Cafe Hours with Tom

Come by Artis Coffee in Asoke any Saturday morning from now through October to get it all sorted.   If you are having trouble or need a little motivation to get it done, Tom can give you a hand.  Start your weekend off right (hopefully left) with some coffee and a little democratic participation!

    Postcard Coloring in the Biergarten

    We are coming to those final hours where the window to reach disenfranchised voters comes to a close. Germany in quarantine has meant that we, Americans, have had lots of time to color. We reached Americans living here who are in swing states that have never registered for an absentee ballot. We mailing out our excess postcards to countries where we know there are Americans who have no support. Come for a final postcard “Hurrah”! Color a postcard to reach one more voter. Come have a political discussion outside in the summer air. Bring your children. They can color and go play at the park. Have older children? Perhaps they would enjoy the companionship of other Americans?

    Global Voter Assistance August 16th

    Did you know every eligible American living  abroad can vote in U.S. elections this year? 

    Do you have questions about how to vote? Click  the chat bubble at the bottom of this screen and we'll help you find the answers.  

    Join us August 16th, or any Sunday till November from midnight to midnight Eastern  time to talk to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about  questions you have about voting from abroad.

    More information: The easiest way to request  your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes  just a few minutes to complete your form and  send it in to the US state where you last lived. If  you've never voted from abroad, the website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to overseas voting, or if you haven’t done it in a while, you may have additional questions. That’s why we’ll be here every Sunday until election day to help.

    If you can’t make it any Sunday, you can always email us at helpdesk@votefromabroad.org or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you promptly.

    We'll be live on Zoom from midnight to midnight this Sunday to answer any questions you may have about requesting your ballot through votefromabroad.org and returning it to your Local Election Office.

    Solitude Park in Basel, Switzerland

    Fourth Annual DACH Rhine Swim & BBQ

    The official Basel Rhine Swim may be canceled this year, but our smaller gathering can still happen. Been wanting to get a Wickelfisch? Wondering what Rhine swimming is all about? Rhine-swimming newbies and experts, join DACH Basel to swim for democracy at our fourth annual Rhine Swim and picnic! 

    We're meeting in the Paul Sacher Anlage AKA Solitude Park (next to Roche & the Tinguely Museum) for a BBQ picnic, followed by a Rhine Swim for those who want to. DA will provide the grills and burgers (veggie and regular), but please bring your own picnic for the rest. Out of consideration for the current health situation, we will not be holding a potluck this year.

    All are welcome! Meet your fellow Democrats in Basel and learn the ins and outs of swimming in the Rhine! Voter Registration volunteers will be on hand to help people register to vote or request their ballots. Don't forget your swimsuit and Wickelfish!
