    Write a Letter to US Voters

    Already requested your ballot at votefromabroad.org and are looking for something else you can do to help Dems in the midterms? Writing letters to voters is an effective action you can take to get out the vote for climate action, women's rights, gun safety, and much more this November. The excellent organisers at Swing Left have invited all Democrats Abroad members to participate in their letter writing campaigns to likely voters in the US. We as citizens abroad have a unique contribution to make to democracy in the US, so let's roll up our sleeves! Bring your own printer and stamps every Saturday at 9AM. RSVP at this link for the Zoom details: https://www.mobilize.us/swingleft/event/274619/

  • Time for Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio CD 11/15, and Florida CD 20 voters to start returning ballots

    IMPORTANT VOTING INFORMATION for Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio CD 11/15, and Florida CD 20 voters: By now, you should have requested your ballot for your election on November 2, 2021. If you haven't requested your ballot, go to www.votefromabroad.org and click START to fill out the FPCA form - for most people it just takes a few minutes.
     
    If you have already returned your FPCA form, your ballot should be in your email inbox this weekend. If you don't see it, contact your local election office next week and ask them to email you a blank ballot. Note that mail service from the US is experiencing new disruptions due to recent COVID-19 outbreaks in Australia, so it's best to request your blank ballot via email and not wait for your state to mail a hard copy.
     
    Next, check your state voting guide to see what method of ballot return your state allows (postal mail-only, fax, or email) and send your completed ballot as soon as possible. Remember that mail and voting issues are still a concern, so it's best to vote electronically if you can. Don't wait to vote, in case you have to correct an error or supply extra information to your state, and remember to check back and confirm your ballot was counted.
     
    If you need help, use the support chat at www.votefromabroad.org or email the Democrats Abroad Australia team at [email protected]
