    AMERICAS REGIONAL WORKSHOP - VOTING FROM ABROAD

    The Democrats Abroad Global Primary: An opportunity for you to help choose the candidate that will defeat Donald Trump in 2020. Democrats Abroad enjoys state status for purposes of the primaries, sends 21 delegates to the DNC convention and is called after Delaware during roll call.

    January 1, 2020 is the day we start registering voters for the November 2020 election and state primaries. Democrats Abroad Americas Region needs volunteers to help organize and run voting centers during the DA Global Primary March 3 – 10, 2020.

    Never have the stakes been so high. We must win. One out of 25 races across the country were won or lost by a 1% or smaller margin in 2018, - the margin that US Citizens abroad bring to almost every Congressional District. We made a difference in 2018, and we can make a bigger one in 2020.

     

    Voting Centers offer an unparalleled opportunity for Democrats Abroad to expand the reach of our message and increase our membership. This opportunity, available only once every four years, has led to significant growth and expansion in DA’s past, most notably in 2016.

    Casting a ballot is a compelling experience for Americans and an appealing image for local media. You are invited to take part in this effort. There are 50 states, each with their deadlines, rules, and regulations. At the workshop, Democrats Abroad will roll out a revamped version of the Vote from Abroad application that automatically fills in the correct information and applies the correct deadlines and regulations for each specific county and state.

    The hours will be 8:00 am – 5:30 pm and the full-day conference fee is $110 for the two days and includes lunches and coffee breaks.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to meet active Democrats from all over the Americas and to make a real difference. You need to be there.  Those of you who joined DACR and checked volunteer or have helped with voter registration in the past; this is your chance to step up to the plate.

    DACH Geneva Book Group - November

    Our November book is The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right by Max Boot. Come join us - whether or not you read the book!

    Additional information about this (and future) event(s) can be found here.


    The AIWC is on the 4th floor of 11 rte. de Chêne.  That's near all the CEVA construction close to the Eaux-Vives railway station. There isn't any easy parking (you can take your luck on the street), but the #12 tram is convenient (walk downhill from stop Amandolier or uphill from stop Roches).  If using a parking garage use Villerouge, which is about a 10 minute walk (don't use the Coop 2000 -- it gets locked early and you might have to wait until Wednesday to retrieve your car).  Nominal start time is 18:30; if you arrive after 19:00 you'll need the door code to get in.

    NOTE: The #12 tram is running again after having a bus substitute this summer for construction work.  And starting in January 2020 the Leman Express will be running to the Gare des Eaux-Vives.


    Not required, but appreciated is if you can bring some food and/or drink to share and Fr. 5.- to help with the room rent.
