Join us September 29th, or any Tuesday till November to speak to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you're having about voting from abroad. We'll be here from 6-10pm CEST (Paris) / 12-4pm (U.S. Eastern)
How is it done on Zoom? You'll come into the main room and be paired 1:1 with a volunteer into a breakout room to ensure privacy and that you can get all your questions answered. It couldn't be easier.
More information: The easiest way to request your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes just a few minutes to complete and send in your form to the US state where you last lived. The website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to voting abroad, 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, you can always email us at email@example.com or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you.

The notorious R.B.G.
15 March 1933 - 18 September 2020
A time to reflect on the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the future of the US Supreme Court
The tributes pour in:
- "As part of the Supreme Court’s four-member liberal wing, she did her most memorable work in dissent." - Adam Liptak, The New York Times.
- "Barely five feet tall and weighing 100 pounds, Justice Ginsburg drew comments for years on her fragile appearance. But she was tough.... - Linda Greenhouse, The New York Times.
- "She spent her extraordinary career fighting for women’s rights and ensuring the promise of the constitution applied to all." - Moira Donegan, The Guardian.
- "Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature." - Chief Justice John Roberts.
In her own words:
“Did you always want to be a judge” or, more exorbitantly, “a Supreme Court justice?” Schoolchildren visiting me at the court, as they do at least weekly, ask that question more than any other. It is a sign of huge progress made. To today’s youth, judgeship as an aspiration for a girl is not at all outlandish.
This special afterwork will open with a presentation about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, followed by a time for shared reflection on the life she lived and the changed nation and world she leaves behind. RSVP for directions on how to attend.
