DAGT is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Guatemala. Our mission is to inform and to encourage every US Citizen in Guatemala to vote in all US elections that their state of last residence allows them to, be they local, state, general and mid-term, and to invite US Citizens to join Democrats Abroad. During 2017 we will grow our membership and encourage participation so that we are as strong as possible as we head into the 2018 midterm elections to help Democrats regain the Senate and win back the House of Representatives. Watch this space for upcoming announcements of meetings and events - we have events planned throughout the year, and encourage anyone interested in participating to get in touch.

If you have questions or would like to help with Democrats Abroad in Guatemala please contact us.

    Upcoming Annual General Meeting March 21, 2020


    The 2020 Democrats Abroad Guatemala Annual General Meeting scheduled for Saturday, March 21 from 11am to 1pm will be held as planned but only via WebEx, an online platform that Democrats Abroad has used for global and regional meetings for several years. Our Executive Committee made this decision following recent Government of Guatemala actions to stop coronavirus transmission. While our meeting would be relatively small, members traveling to and from the event could find themselves in situations of high exposure. WebEx is no more complex than streaming Netflix or PBS.Org on your laptop. The formal WebEx invitation follows below.  Please read it carefully. Click on the link to observe what it will look like when you access the meeting and try to acquaint yourself with the program. If you have questions, please contact John Chudy at: or 5783-3633.

    If attending via WebEx is not possible, then do submit a proxy. Click on this link to access the proxy form then:

    • Download the proxy form into WORD
    • Type in your information (A typed signature is acceptable)
      • It’s best to mark your proxy GENERAL, and TRANSFERABLE. If you don't know anyone else going, you can give your proxy to any ExComm member attending including Juan Pablo Aris, Scotney Young, Kee Evans, Dave Evans or John Chudy.
    • Save it with your name, (example: DA_Guatemala_Proxy_John Doe)
    • Return your proxy either to the Chair, John Chudy or to our events chairperson, Kee Adams Evans (instructions are on the form)
