Democrats Abroad supports every American abroad to register to vote, and cast their ballots from overseas. In 2022, we were the leading country within Democrats Abroad for ballot requests via in relation to our membership size. Globally and locally, we rely on volunteers to ensure members and friends are enfranchised in every election, every year. American absentee votes have been decisive in numerous elections across the US.

Together with DA country committees around the globe, we're making specific issues faced by overseas Americans known on Capitol Hill and joining important activism events with friends and family in the US. With technology and social media, there are many ways for us to make our voices heard, even an ocean away.

Watch this space and our News and Events tabs above for upcoming announcements of meetings and events. We encourage anyone interested in participating and helping with Democrats Abroad Portugal to get in touch. Our Executive Committee meetings are typically held online on the second Wednesday of the month and are open to all members. Contact us at [email protected] if you'd like to attend.

Please share your questions, ideas, and enthusiasm for politics with us! We look forward to meeting you!
