Get registered for 2022, request your ballot, VOTE and send it back. Time is growing short! Find out more about how to do it from Greece. And once you’ve voted, click here to let us know.

Then get involved. Find a chapter in Athens or Thessaloniki or get in touch with an At-Large representative if you live outside a chapter area.

Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events - we have events planned throughout the year and encourage anyone interested to take part or pitch in.

    Rigged Elections: ‘45’ Snatched This One, Too!


    Voters wait to feed their ballots into an optical scanning machine

    1984 or so, Fisherman’s Wharf in Columbus, Greek Nite. Joining us every month or so was the executive team from Borden’s: Al, Peter, and Tash. Peter, who had been on the team that developed Elmer’s glue, had Cefalonian roots. Tash had a penchant for club singing and was actually quite good at the mic. And then there was the old sage, Al. Some current panic over nuclear war or enviro disaster was in the air, and Al said, wisely, peppering it with examples from the Dark Ages and before, that mankind had always confronted plagues and disasters that were sure to wipe out the human race. And yet, we’d always overcome them when science and logic kicked in. I look back on his assurance with hope. ~KL

    If democracy succeeds on mutual trust, then planting seeds of doubt is the first step at brushing that pesky people’s choice aside. And, there are a lot of seeds being planted this year. It bears a closer look.

    You Can Vote From Greece!

     

    Here's how ...

    If you're a U.S. citizen or dual-national in Greece, you have the right to vote from abroad in the 2022 midterm elections and every election. If you are or will be 18 on Nov 8, 2022, you can vote in the upcoming elections.

    Εάν είστε πολίτης των ΗΠΑ ή διπλή υπήκοος στην Ελλάδα, έχετε το δικαίωμα να ψηφίσετε από το εξωτερικό στις ενδιάμεσες εκλογές του 2022 και σε κάθε εκλογή. Εάν είστε ή θα είστε 18 ετών στις 8 Νοεμβρίου 2022, μπορείτε να ψηφίσετε στις επερχόμενες εκλογές.

    As a U.S. citizen, you can register to vote from abroad while living, working, or traveling overseas by submitting one form, the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). It doesn't matter if you were registered to vote before you left the U.S. or how long you have lived outside the U.S. (including if you've never resided there).

    Ως πολίτης των ΗΠΑ, μπορείτε να εγγραφείτε για να ψηφίσετε από το εξωτερικό ενώ ζείτε, εργάζεστε ή ταξιδεύετε στο εξωτερικό υποβάλλοντας ένα έντυπο, την Αίτηση Ομοσπονδιακής Ταχυδρομικής Κάρτας (FPCA). Δεν έχει σημασία αν είχατε εγγραφεί για να ψηφίσετε πριν φύγετε από τις Η.Π.Α. ή πόσο καιρό έχετε ζήσει εκτός των Η.Π.Α. (συμπεριλαμβανομένου του αν δεν έχετε διαμείνει ποτέ εκεί).
    ΔΕΝ ΓΙΝΕΤΑΙ ΠΡΟΣΩΠΙΚΗ ΨΗΦΟΦΟΡΙΑ στην Ελλάδα στην Πρεσβεία ή στο Προξενείο για τις εκλογές του Νοεμβρίου 2022! Κάντε κύλιση προς τα κάτω για να βρείτε τις οδηγίες στην Eλληνική γλώσσα.
