Welcome to Democrats Abroad
It’s too late to drop off your ballot at the Embassy or Consulate, and questionable timing if sending by postal mail but don’t despair. DemsAbroad Canada has enrolled in the UPS Member Benefits Program to offer an alternative, with up to 50% savings off published shipping rates*. This is an ongoing savings benefit – it does not expire on Nov. 3rd!
DA Hamilton-Burlington is a chapter of DA Canada, the official country committee for US Democrats living in Canada. 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.
In 2016, only 33,000 Americans living in Canada cast a ballot in the General Election. With 15-days remaining, 75% of the members of DemsAbroad Canada have engaged with requesting a ballot in this critical election. Take a moment to request your ballot to be a part of the blue tsunami from Canada at VoteFromAbroad.org.
Hundreds of American citizen volunteers across Canada are working to educate all eligible U.S. voters on their right to vote and how to get their ballots to vote in every election. That includes Canadians who were born in the U.S. and those born in Canada to an American parent(s), who therefore have the right to vote. Americans living in Canada CAN deliver the difference in close elections.
Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot.

DEBATE WATCH -- JUNE 26 & 27
Everyone is invited to join Dems Abroad to watch and discuss the first debates among Democratic candidates for the Presidential nomination. The top twenty candidates will present in the debates, with ten each night. These first debates are widely expected to shape the field of candidates for the rest of campaign.
We'll gather at the George Hamilton restaurant at 152 King Street West at Bay Street in downtown Hamilton. Doors open at 8:30 pm; the debates are scheduled to begin at 9 pm. American citizens will be able to register to vote at the event both nights -- and to join Democrats Abroad if they wish. Drinks and pub food will be available at cost. The event itself is open to the public at no charge.
Today (June 12) is the final deadline for nationally recognized polls which are needed by the Dem hopefuls to qualify for inclusion in the debates. The final information on who will be included in the debates will be available tomorrow.

I'm active with Democrats Abroad to make positive change in U.S. politics, which affects the entire world. Dems Abroad is the best way for me to have an impact through the American electoral process. Personally, I'm a retired rabbi originally from Baltimore. I lived in Vancouver for 23 years until Fall 2018 when I moved to Hamilton, ON. Two of my three adult children live abroad, one in Tel Aviv, one in Kingston, ON.
