    Rentrée for American Voters: a busy week in September


    Democrats Abroad Luxembourg reached more than 100 Americans living in Luxembourg in early September, with three voter-oriented events over four days. First up was the Welcome Back festival at ISL, where super-volunteer Mark gave non-partisan support for voters requesting their ballots for the midterms while Executive Committee members Natalie and Will talked about Democrats Abroad.

    Our well-attended Second Tuesday gathering was another chance to help members and newcomers request their ballots. Our battery-powered printer -- generously provided by the donations of our members -- let us create the forms while we enjoyed the warm evening on Bosso's terrace.

    On Wednesday, Mark and Will helped dozens of American students spending their fall semester in Luxembourg. The students had some complicated questions about what address to use and how to return their ballots. We were well-prepared by the global Study Abroad and global GOTV teams!

    It's a short season for reaching voters in time to get their ballots easily! If your workplace or club has Americans, we'll happily give a short presentation or staff a small booth where we can answer questions and ensure that they get their ballots. You can always send them to our online tool, http://www.votefromabroad.org/

    Proudly supporting the April 22 March for Science in Luxembourg

    Democrats Abroad Luxembourg is very proud to announce that we are promoting and supporting a local March for Science coordinated with hundreds of other marches and events all over the United States and the world.

    Follow the event and indicate your willingness to stand with us here:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/651825821669460/

    On April 22, we will stand together with millions around the world to say that the common good of humanity depends on defending critical thinking and the free exchange of ideas. The global Women's March organization has designated this an official successor to their own marches in January.

    Please spread the word (and social media links) among friends and family -- American or not -- and scientists and women and anyone else who wants a better world. Watch your email for DA-specific events to make placards and posters the week before the march. If you'd like to volunteer to support the march or you know a group that would like to participate, please contact the main organization.
