    Voter Assistance Training

    Join our Voter Assistance Volunteer Team!

    You can only vote once, but every American you help register to vote or help to request an absentee ballot is an additional vote for good government, democracy, and a better future for all Americans. 

    Learning how just takes an hour.  Making a difference just takes an hour. 

    By our answering E-inquiries, providing forms, staffing virtual voter registration tables, etc., many more Americans living abroad will cast their vote in November. 

    INTROVERTS?               Phone-calling isn’t your thing, but this is how YOU can help.  

    CANADIANS?               How often have you heard Canadians say,  “I wish I could vote,” or “How can I help?”  Bring them to the training, too! This is something anyone, including non-Americans, can do.

    Can we count on YOU to help put Democrats in control of the White House, the Senate, AND the House come November?

    Learn how to help make it happen! RSVP today for the Zoom link, and bring a friend.

    Halifax Pride: Voter Empowerment

    American's living in Halifax often do not understand their voting rights while living abroad. Our goal is to help voters understand their rights, register to vote in the 2020 election, and offer support and volunteer services for those who require assistance voting in the 2020 election. This election is important for 2SLGTBQ+ rights as the current administration has sought to strip American's of their legal rights and protections, and encouraging and supporting voter empowerment practices will help elect a Government which will support and protect our community.

    Sternbräu Restaurant in Salzburg, Austria

    Salzburg Meet-up

    While living in Austria since 2010, I have enjoyed interaction with fellow Americans through involvement with Democrats Abroad. The meet-ups, which I began attending in Salzburg, were a great way to hear about and share diverse opinions with each other. I hope you'll join with fellow Democrats Abroad Austria members and others who are interested in discussing political/current events in the USA. Anyone is welcome. 
     
    Our summer meet-ups on the third Friday of the month – July 17, August 21, and September 18 – will be casual discussions over dinner and/or drinks starting at 5:30pm. That leaves enough time for you to enjoy other Friday night plans you might have.
     
    If you cannot come this time but what to be in the loop about future Salzburg activities, also feel free to let me know that as well.

    Phonebanking with the Youth Caucus!

    Join Saturday Phonebanking with the Youth Caucus!

    This is a recurring event.

    Every Saturday the DA France Youth Caucus is hosting a virtual phonebank as we call thousands of US Democratic voters living in France to make sure they are registered and ready to vote in critical Presidential, Senate and House races this fall. We need your help. You must be a member of Democrats Abroad France to help make these calls, if you aren't already: join here.

    Get Trained with DA France
    For the 90 minutes we will walk through phonebanking using CallHub, including some new features specific to France. During the Zoom session, we can also answer questions you may have, and support each other as we call voters.

    If you have done the training, and are comfortable phone banking, then you know you can make calls from home any time, to US voters around the world — there is no reason to wait until Saturday or join our Zoom to make calls, but please feel free to come by, say hi and share your experiences calling others.

    Before Saturday
    Sign up to become a call agent with CallHub: www.democratsabroad.org/phonebanking. (It is also helpful to walk through the basic training materials on this page.)
    And please fill out our Volunteer Intake form, here.

    GOTV Infostand Regensburg

    Democrats Abroad Germany's new North and Central Bavaria chapter is hosting a Get-Out-The-Vote Infostand in Regensburg! Are you new to voting from abroad? Unsure whether you've requested your ballot? Have you run into problems trying to obtain it? Come by, get some help and meet other DA members in the area.

    We'll be at the western end of Neupfarrplatz, in front of the Salamander at the corner of Wahlenstrasse.

    The National Gallery in London , United Kingdom

    Phone Banking Training

    Learn how to make calls to ensure that all Democrats Abroad members are set to vote in the 2020 U.S. elections. Overseas votes will be the margin of victory in many races. We will be contacting members and helping them request their absentee ballots using votefromabroad.org.

    Please RSVP here. This event will be held via Zoom.

    Are you looking for something to do from home that will really make a difference in getting out the overseas vote in 2020?

    Help us ensure that all Democrats Abroad members are set to vote in the U.S. elections this year. Citizens living outside the U.S. need to request their ballots every calendar year they want to vote. But according to recent records, only a fraction of our DA members have requested their ballots via votefromabroad.org this year!

    You can help by calling our members from your own computer. Sign up for this free training session to learn how to do it.

    We will let our members know that in most states the ballot request can be completed electronically on votefromabroad.org in a few minutes. To expand the reach further, we will ask our members to help their US citizens friends request their ballots too.

    Our campaign will target our members in key states, where Democrats have a real chance of winning or retaining important seats if we boost voter turnout!

    This is an on-line meeting; you will receive a zoom link in your confirmation email after registering.
