Welcome to Democrats Abroad Lion City Committee (DALCC), the Country Committee of Democrats Abroad for those living in Singapore.  We offer a community and point of contact for Democrats seeking to connect and stay informed and engaged while living abroad.
Activities include hosting voter registration events in election years, bringing Democrats together through social events and volunteer opportunities, providing updates on legislation and races back home through our Facebook Page, tracking expat issues, and supporting Democratic candidates.

How to find us and get involved:

1 Join us now—it’s easy and free. 
As a member of Democrats Abroad you will get emails about our activities and events.

2 Like our Democrats Abroad Lion City Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/DemocratsAbroadLionCity
Use the drop-down menu under ‘liked’ to ensure you are notified whenever new updates are posted.  Here you can follow local activities and the latest postings about issues/campaigns back home (including legislation directly affecting expats).  You can also post your comments.

3 Most important, if you haven’t already done this, please register to vote from abroad and request a ballot in each year that you want to vote.  This site makes it quick and easy.   https://www.votefromabroad.org

Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party organization for more than 8.7 million Americans living outside the United States.  It has the status of a ‘state’ in the Democratic Party, so is represented by voting members on the Democratic National Committee and has its own delegation to the Democratic National Convention. 

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at a future event!

Democratically yours,

    Directions for cars: Drive in past the gatehouse and then take a left turn up the hill. After the road bends back to the right, you'll see block A in front of you. Go into the block A elevator in front of you for units 5-8 (there's another elevator off to the side for units 1-4, but don't use that one). Take it up to the 7th floor and unit 5 will be on your left as you come out of the elevator. Please submit nominations and statement of interests via email to herro048@umn.edu no later than 14th April.

    Once all nominations are received, we will email all of the candidate’s statements of interest and a ballot to be reviewed prior to the election.

    Options for voting: (choose one): 1. Vote in person at the election meeting via paper ballot. 2. Vote via proxy at the election meeting. Submit proxy form by 4th May. Please note that no proxy holder can have more than 2 proxies and that the nominations committee will recommend eligible proxy holders to people who don’t know who to ask.
