We Are Democrats Abroad France



Vote in the Global Presidential Primary

We are one of the largest and oldest country committees of Democrats Abroad — the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. We are a volunteer-based organization with a presence across France.

Our Mission: To provide Americans living in France a voice in US politics back home, and to help elect Democrats by mobilizing the overseas vote.

Our Chapters: Wherever you are in France, there is a chapter with events and community for our members. Click on a link to find a local chapter:













Our Caucuses: We have five active caucuses that focus on specific constituencies:
