    When Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate, many of us thought first about how much fun it would be to watch her debate Vice President Pence.  Harris's background as a prosecutor and Attorney General of California are on display every time she examines someone, including her viral grilling of now-Justice Kavanaugh, and Democrats around the world are excited to see how she'll do in the Vice Presidential Debate. 

    Please join us for a watch party for the Vice Presidential Debate on Thursday 8 October. Note Australian Daylight Savings Time will have begun: the time is 12:00pm-1:30pm AEST (Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra) / 11:00am-12:30pm Brisbane.

    Global Voter Assistance: October 8th

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

    Do you have questions about how to vote? Click the chat bubble at the bottom of this screen and we can help you find the answers.  

    Join us October 8th, or any Thursday 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 helpdesk@votefromabroad.org or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you.
