Welcome to Democrats Abroad Mexico!

An estimated 1.5 million US citizens reside in Mexico, and our job is to help ALL of them register to vote in US federal, state, and local elections. Votes from abroad were responsible for many democratic victories in the 2018 midterms, and they will make a difference again in 2020!

If you are interested in joining our team of passionate and dedicated volunteers, please fill out the form here. Every effort counts, whether at the national or local level. Help us be the margin of victory in 2020.

We hope to see you at our Annual General Meeting in March 2020, and follow our  events page and our social media accounts for details about other upcoming activities.

    Statement on the Mass Shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio

    4 August 2019

    This weekend, we are once again brought to grief and sorrow over horrific mass shootings in America. The nightmare of gun violence struck early Sunday morning in an entertainment district in Dayton, Ohio, where a young man in body armor wielded an AK-47-style assault rifle, killing at least nine people and wounding 27. The dead included the shooter’s sister.

    The tragedy in Dayton came less than 15 hours after the weekend’s first gun massacre, an act of domestic terrorism in which another young man with body armor and an assault rifle entered a Wal-mart in El Paso, Texas, killing 20 people and wounding more than two dozen. In a manifesto attributed to the shooter, he railed against immigrants and warned of a “Hispanic invasion of Texas.”

    To those affected by these violent acts, we extend our deepest sympathies. Today we learned from Mexico’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, that six Mexicans are among the dead in El Paso. We stand in solidarity with him and all others condemning this massacre as an act of terrorism.  We call on the U.S. government and Department of Justice to cooperate with those investigating this incident as an act of terrorism and support efforts to obtain all necessary legal evidence.

    President Trump declared today that “hate has no place in our country.” We challenge the president to live up to his words and stop the hateful, racist rhetoric he has returned to time and again in his campaign and in his presidency. We urge the president to call out and condemn white supremacist terrorism in the same way that he has seized upon and condemned radical Islam. And we call on Congress to finally enact sensible gun reforms that a majority of Americans support. Let’s end this cycle of shock, grief, and rage once and for all.

    2020 DA Mexico Annual General Meeting

    ¡Be the Margin of Victory!

    2020 is going to be a pivotal year for the future of American democracy. At Democrats Abroad Mexico, we remain committed to mobilizing the over 200,000 United States Voters in Mexico to restore respect, dignity, and integrity to our nation’s highest offices.

    Getting Republicans out and Democrats in next year, however, is going to be a collective effort. It’s going to require us to work together nationwide like never before, keeping our eyes set on one main goal: getting each and every US voter in Mexico to vote.

    We would thus like to cordially invite you to join us in our efforts by attending the

    2020 Annual General Meeting of Democrats Abroad Mexico focused on “Being the Margin of Victory” from

    Friday, March 27 to Sunday, March 29, 2020 at the Hilton Guadalajara Midtown.


    A great series of events are planned to help us – Democrats across Mexico – connect and discuss our voter outreach efforts in 2020. These events are outlined in our tentative schedule, please check back for updates. Note: When using a US credit card, and presented the scroll down menu for issuer, choose Visa for Visa and Master for Master Card, when given a list of Mexican bank options.
