Keep voting, keep engaged

Whether you’re temporarily overseas or ‘going Dutch’, Democrats Abroad Netherlands brings us all together to keep connected to the political process back in the US.  Become a member – it's easy.

In Dutch, there’s just one word (stem) for ‘vote’ and ‘voice’. And we couldn't agree more. Your vote is your voice — and we’re here to make sure you’re heard! Together, the voice of Americans abroad is millions strong with the power to swing elections all across the country. We vote in presidential elections, midterms for Congress, and local and special elections happening all the time. Our overseas voting website — www.votefromabroad.org — is the simplest, most effective way to make sure you never miss your chance to be heard. 

 

HOW TO VOTE FROM NETHERLANDS


 

GET INVOLVED FOR THE 2024 GLOBAL PRIMARY

For the 2024 Global Presidential Primary, we will be running Voting Centers in several areas of the country next March. If you have the time, we NEED VOLUNTEERS to help register voters and to remind those who are already registered to request their ballots. 

Democrats Abroad had a significant impact in the 2020 election, providing the votes that put the Biden/Harris ticket over the top in Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin. To ensure continued Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, we’re determined to mobilize for the upcoming midterms in the same way so please sign up for phone-banking to help us reach fellow Democrats around the world and remind them to vote. It really works, so get involved – you can BE THE DIFFERENCE! Sign Up here to volunteer now!

Some images of Netherlands' events: Global Presidential Primary, March For Our Lives, Writing to Voters, Black Heritage of Amsterdam Boat Tour, Wine & Cheese Canal Rides. We hope to see you soon!

Events & activities
Throughout the year, we get together to make friends and make a difference. As a member, we’ll keep you informed of everything from 4th of July celebrations and Thanksgiving dinners to issue-oriented actions. You can find all our events here — and please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to help spread the word.

Get involved
We’re all volunteers here and there’s always a way to get involved. We need help planning and organizing activities, helping voters get their ballots, and managing our database and social media. And every 2 years, we elect leaders who will guide us through the next election cycle. Whether you like meeting new people or working behind the screen, please get in touch to help make it all happen. 

Join a caucus
Our caucuses are global teams focused on specific issues within our diverse community. We invite you to follow and get involved in the activities of any or all of them. We’d love to organize local caucus groups in the Netherlands, like our Democrats Abroad NL Youth Caucus, and are always looking for volunteers ready to take the lead.
