We are now in the final days of registering to vote for the November 3rd US Presidential election. We need YOUR help to reach every single Democrats Abroad member in Australia and remind them they need to register before the deadline.Some numbers:
>> August 1st is the recommended deadline that US citizens abroad return their Federal Post Card Application
>> In June we made about 700 calls, leaving over 2700 members still to be telephoned to be sure they have requested their ballot. Many of the people we have spoken to have not realised or not remembered to request their ballot -- and they are really happy to get the reminder!

This is a recurring event.
Yoga is so popular today for its many benefits it offers the mind, body and soul. But maybe you've never tried yoga. Or maybe you've tried and thought it wasn't for you? Yoga is for everyone, and this Radiant Warrior vinyasa flow set is perfect for you. If you are already a confirmed yogi, come along for a slow flow that gets back to the basics.
If you have the following, please bring it to class: a yoga mat or some kind of mat that doesn't slip, a couple of yoga blocks or thick books (Harry Potter style), a strap or fabric belt or scarf, a small pillow or cushion or towel, and some water to drink.
Gretchen has done yoga for many years and is completing her 200-hour online yoga teacher training with the Yoga Farm Ithaca. She is chair of Democrats Abroad Grenoble, national Volunteer Coordinator, and teaches English at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc in Chambéry. She votes in Maine.
This event is A Feelgood Fundraiser for Democrats Abroad France, and benefits our critical 2020 "Get Out the Vote" Efforts this Fall. Any contribution is welcome; 10 EUR per person is suggested. Please give here. Thank you!
DISCLAIMER: Yoga is a physical exercise that can include some strenuous activity. Before engaging in any physical exercise or activity, all participants are advised to consult with a medical professional to ensure that they are capable of participating in any exercise routine or class. If you are pregnant or have any major illnesses, you are strongly urged and advised to seek the advice of a medical professional or specialist familiar with your personal situation before beginning any exercise routine or class. Democrats Abroad France (DAF) is not an official yoga class provider nor a medical adviser and cannot advise participants as to the risks involved in participating in a yoga class at home outside of the in-person supervision of a certified yoga teacher. Accordingly, all participants in home-based Zoom yoga classes led by DAF or any DAF members are thus participating at their own risk. DAF will not be held responsible for any harm or injuries endured during said classes.

We are so excited to welcome the Kassel Precinct to our chapter! Please join us for a Meet and Greet with Candice Kerestan, DA Germany Chair, and Kenton Barnes, DA Germany Vice Chair and the new Precinct Captain, Richie Sentinella. We want to make Democrats Abroad more understandable and accessible by looking at our organization's structure and goals, discussing ways to get involved in preparing for the 2020 election, especially reaching voters in the local area. It’s also a great time to connect with Americans in the Kassel area and brainstorm ideas for working together and building up the new precinct.
Whether you're a long-time member or brand new to DA Germany, we warmly welcome everyone to join us for this event, gladly with a drink in hand. We hope to answer any questions you may have and take part in a lively discussion. We look forward to seeing you and working together to build a vibrant new precinct and help ensure a successful election in November 2020!
