Welcome to Election Year 2024!

Happy New Year, and welcome to Election Year 2024!

If you haven't yet, please head over to VoteFromAbroad.org to request your ballots for this year's elections. You can also request your DA-specific ballot for our Global Presidential Primary!

We have a lot of events coming up in the next few weeks, as well as several volunteer opportunities. Please take a look and sign up for anything that interests you!

As always, feel free to reach out to our team if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Democratically yours,

Election years are our busiest years, as we need to be fundraising and registering voters from January through October. We will need all hands on deck, so please consider becoming a volunteer. We are also looking for some specific team leads; you can contact our national chair Tory Mallett if you're interested or have specific questions about those roles.

During our Global Presidential Primary event on March 9, we will need at least 5 volunteers at all times. Can you sign up for one of our shifts?

Democrats Abroad Switzerland is putting together a team of runners to raise money specifically for our international Get Out the Vote efforts. Our efforts to reach the millions of Americans living outside of the US are the most cost-effective way to reach potential voters.

How can you help?

  • Sign up to be a runner.

  • Find someone else to be a runner.
    (They can be non-US citizens, since their registration fee won't be paid to DA.)
  • Pledge to sponsor a runner.
    (Only US citizens can pledge, as their money will go directly into the DA account.)
  • Offer to host a runner on May 25th. Email me if you have a spare bed!
    (For runners coming from outside of Basel, we would like to offer the opportunity of homestays to allow them to save on hotel costs.)

Thank you for reading and we hope to see you soon!

Democratically yours,
