    US Pop-Up Consulate and Voter Registration

    The US Consulate General in Vancouver will be returning to Victoria to host a "Pop-Up Consulate" for US citizens and DA Victoria will be hosting a Voter Registration event at the same time.

    We'll be helping US citizens register to vote and to request their ballots for the 2018 Midterm Elections. Every overseas voter may vote in the upcoming elections! But overseas voters need to send in the form to request a ballot every calendar year in which they wish to vote. Voter registration is always nonpartisan; we provide voter registration support to every US citizen who requests help.

    If you'd like to volunteer to help with DA Victoria's voter registration events, please email us at: : davictoriachapter@gmail.com

    Know other US citizens living in the area? The Pop-Up Consulate and the voter registration help is available for all US citizens, so please pass this information on to any other US citizens you know.

    Maastricht Monthly Meet-up

    As promised, we're coming to Maastricht! Join us for the first meeting of our new Maastricht group.

    This will be the first of our monthly meet-ups for members in the area — so you don't need to travel to Amsterdam or Den Haag to meet others, connect and get involved!

    Our Secretary, Tre' Shawn Griffin-Noordermeer, will be on hand for voter registration and training (a quick 10-minute briefing), to talk about volunteer opportunities, and to get your input on what you'd like to see from Democrats Abroad in the Maastricht area. The meeting will be low key and informal.

    We'll meet at the local GroenLinks office. Following the meeting members are invited to join Groen Links volunteers for soup at a local restaurant at 4:30. Come out and network!

    Dems Abroad-GDL Members & Buddies

    2018 KICK-OFF GARDEN CONFAB

    The “midterm” election is coming, so this is the year to nip Trump, broadcast our democratic values and use the “buddy system” to do it.

    That’s why all DA-GDL members & their friends are invited February 24 to a home & garden in Colonia Seattle. If you haven’t yet requested your ballot for this important election (all 435 seats in the US House of Representatives & 34 of 100 seats in the Senate will be contested!) this is your chance to do so, refreshed by snacks, music & camaraderie.

    And your friend? You’re asked to bring a US citizen who’s interested in DA (and not already a member) & wants to request a ballot. (Membership is free & easy, with very few strings attached.)

    When: Saturday, February 24, 4–7 pm
    Where: Home of Ricardo Barreto & Will Chapman
    Avenida “D” 654, Colonia Seattle, Zapopan

    Admittance to the event is free. Everyone who attends will be entered in a drawing for a door prize, a certificate good for $1500 pesos at a local restaurant. In addition, there will be a raffle to raise funds for increasing the vote in elections this year.

    Let us know you are coming! RSVP to Jude Wallesen at jlwallesen@gmail.com or 332-257-4558.

    INICIO 2018- CHARLA EN EL JARDÍN

    Las elecciones intermedias se acercan, así que este es el año para incomodar a Trump, difundir nuestros valores Demócratas e invitar a los cuates.

    Es por eso que todos los miembros de DA-GDL y sus cuates están invitados a una fiesta en el jardín en la colonia Seattle. Si aún no has solicitado tu boleta para votar en esta elección tan importante (todos los 435 asientos de la Cámara de Representantes y 34 de los 100 asientos en el Senado serán elegidos) esta es tu oportunidad para hacerlo mientras disfrutas de botanas, música y camaradería.

    Y tus cuates? Te pedimos que invites a ciudadanos estadounidenses que estén interesados en DA (que aún no sean miembros) y quieran solicitar su boleta. (La membresía es gratuita y fácil de obtener con sólo algunos pocos requisitos).

    Cuándo: Sábado, 24 de febrero, de 4 a 7 pm
    Dónde: En la casa de Ricardo Barreto y Will Chapman
    Avenida “D” 654, colonia Seattle, Zapopan

    La entrada es libre. Cada uno de los asistentes participará en el sorteo de un certificado de regalo bueno por $1,500 pesos para un restaurant local. Además, podrás adquirir boletos para la rifa organizada con el fin de recaudar fondos para apoyar la difusión del voto en las elecciones de este año.

    Confirma tu asistencia!

    SolSun #12: Make an Impact Your Way

    Join us to learn more about how you can make an impact your way in this year's midterm elections. We need your help to register other American's living abroad and to make sure they vote. Come and learn how easy it is to register to vote from abroad and discover the creative ways of getting other Americans to do the same.

    We will be writing postcards to folks back home and in Austria reminding them to register to vote, phone-banking to other Democrats, and some of our members are even hosting brunches in their homes for their friends and making them sign up to register to vote on the spot.

    We will also have a recap of the Democrats Abroad EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) Regional meeting on strategies and projects that are being done around the world that we can implement here in Austria.

    Finally, we will also be celebrating our one year anniversary of Sunday Solidarity in Vienna, join us for cake and coffee!!
