Bem-vindo aos Democrats Abroad - Portugal!

Welcome to DA-Portugal, the official arm of the Democratic Party for American Democrats living in Portugal – on the continent, Madeira, and the Azores. If you subscribe to the principles of the Democratic Party, live in Portugal, and will be 18 years old by Election Day in November 2020, please join us by clicking the Join link at the bottom of this post.

Democrats Abroad supports every American abroad to register to vote, and cast their ballots from overseas. In 2020, our get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts will be especially vital for the presidential primaries and general election. Globally and locally, we rely on volunteers to ensure members and friends are enfranchised 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 have events planned throughout the year, and encourage anyone interested in participating and helping with Democrats Abroad Portugal to get in touch.

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

    “The Brink” Film Screening Draws Democrats in Lisbon and Porto

    The documentary film "The Brink" had its Portugal premiere in Lisbon on October 24, as part of the doclisboa film festival. Over 40 Democrats Abroad members attended the premier to view the film, in which award-winning filmmaker Alison Klayman takes on former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, following him for over a year as he tries to promote his brand of extreme nationalism and unite the far-right anti-immigrant parties of Europe.
