Voter turnout among Americans living abroad has been ⚡surging⚡ since 2017, and interest in this election is higher than we've ever seen. The 🌀stakes🌀 of this election are clear, and 🙋🏿♀️🙋♂️young people🙋🏾♂️🙋🏽♀️ want to get involved.
But in 2016, just 6.9% (not nice) of adult US citizens living abroad voted in the general election. Too many Americans living abroad are unaware of their voting rights or face 🌵 obstacles 🌵 in exercising them. Students and young adults are disproportionately affected by these roadblocks, and with the major disruptions and backlogs the US postal system now faces, many voters overseas will fall victim to voter suppression. This year, we need you to step up and volunteer 💯 to help others get registered ☑️ and make sure their vote✊ is counted ☑️.
We will be holding 🎒on-campus events🎒 during 📓 la rentrée 📓 to make sure young Americans in France are able to make their votes count ✊. We need you to step up and get 🚆trained🚆 to be a voting assistance officer. In this training, we'll give you all the tools you need help your community and your classmates register and vote✊ with an on-campus event!
↪️RSVP for the training below (we'll send you the Zoom link upon RSVP) and will give you the 💃🏾skills💃🏾 and resources you need to be a 🧙voting champion🧙 on campus, and fill out the volunteer form below if you’re interested in learning about other volunteer opportunities.
See you Thursday!
