    Zoom Room Voter Help

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

    Do you have questions about how to vote?

    Join us 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.

    RSVP below to join us Sunday, July 19th and drop-in anytime between midnight and midnight Eastern.

    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 and a volunteer will get back to you promptly.

    Global AAPI Caucus Meet and Greet (Asia-Pacific-friendly Time)

    Are you interested in joining the newly formed Democrats Abroad Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Caucus?

    Do you want to know how to get involved and what the caucus is all about?

    Then join us on Sunday, July 19th for an online meet and greet to meet some of the leaders of the AAPI caucus and learn more about how you can become a member and help the caucus develop. We’ll also address how you can start the caucus in your own country. And, of course, you will have the chance to meet other members of Democrats Abroad and the caucus!

    We will provide a short introduction about what caucuses are all about in Democrats Abroad and what specifically the AAPI caucus is working on. As a group focused on promoting and advocating on issues related to the AAPI community, we hope to hold events to raise awareness and help increase voter participation among this specific group. Following this introduction and any questions, we will open up the floor to an informal discussion about ideas people have about what issues the AAPI caucus should focus on and how to be an effective group.

    All are welcome to join us on the call, even if you do not specifically identify as a member of the AAPI community.

    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.

    Getting Out the Black Vote: A Conversation with Horace Small and the Diversity Caucus/GBC

    A Conversation with Horace Small
    and the Diversity Caucus of DA France

    and the Global Black Caucus

    Horace Small is Executive Director of Union of Minority Neighborhoods, and a legendary organizer/activist (and personality!) in the Boston area for decades who famously made then-governor Mitt Romney take back his plan to scrap the office of affirmative action for the state

    “UMN is rewriting the rules of black politics in Massachusetts, mobilizing some of the state’s poorest citizens to push for their share of the pie. They work for equity, not just equality.” – Boston Magazine.

    Today, UNM runs the Black Ballot Power initiative — a non-partisan national campaign to increase Black voter turnout focusing on critical areas of the country.

    Why Not Voting Must Not Be an Option!

    • In 2016, nearly half of all eligible voters (46.9%) did NOT vote — over 108,000,000 people
    • Half of all non-voters were non-white
    • Two-thirds were under age 50
    • One-quarter earned less than $30,000 a year.

    Black Ballot Power Initiative Will

    • Convince non-voting Blacks that their vote matters
    • Get them registered and to the polls

    Join this call with DA France's Diversity Caucus and DA's Global Black Caucus to hear from Horace Small about his work with UMN in Boston, his long and storied career in community organizing and working with neighborhoods, and how he and other community activists and organizers in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York are working to help make sure the black vote turns out and is counted. 

    While there is no donation requirement to attend, we hope you’ll consider a donation of $5 or $10 to help Democrats Abroad reach hundreds of thousands of Democratic voters abroad. Thank you for your support!

    Help US Citizens Vote From Australia!

    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.  Many of the people we have spoken to so far have either not realised or not remembered about requesting their ballot -- and they are very happy to get the reminder!
    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
    >> That's 87 people who need to be called each day in July
    This is the most important thing Democrats Abroad Australia can be doing right now to vote Trump out of office - so let's get to work!
    If you've never phonebanked with Democrats Abroad before, join us on Wed 22 July at 6PM Sydney/Melbourne/Brisbane, 5.30 Adelaide, 4PM Perth where we'll show you the ropes. You can also drop in any time during this time to ask questions or just let us know how it's going.
