It’s too late to drop off your ballot at the Embassy or Consulate, and questionable timing if sending by postal mail but don’t despair. DemsAbroad Canada has enrolled in the UPS Member Benefits Program to offer an alternative, with up to 50% savings off published shipping rates*. This is an ongoing savings benefit – it does not expire on Nov. 3rd!
The Canada’s Capital Region chapter of Democrats Abroad Canada is the official home for U.S. Democrats living in eastern Ontario and southwestern Quebec. Our membership territory includes the communities of Ottawa, Gatineau, Chelsea, Wakefield, Petawawa, Stittsville, Lanark, Kingston, Chelsea, Bath, Kemptville, Almonte, Carleton Place, Cumberland, Cornwall, Morrisburg, and more.
In 2016, only 33,000 Americans living in Canada cast a ballot in the General Election. With 15-days remaining, 75% of the members of DemsAbroad Canada have engaged with requesting a ballot in this critical election. Take a moment to request your ballot to be a part of the blue tsunami from Canada at VoteFromAbroad.org.
Hundreds of American citizen volunteers across Canada are working to educate all eligible U.S. voters on their right to vote and how to get their ballots to vote in every election. That includes Canadians who were born in the U.S. and those born in Canada to an American parent(s), who therefore have the right to vote. Americans living in Canada CAN deliver the difference in close elections.
Go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register for your ballot.
The chapter is also a peer-group resource for U.S. citizens looking for help with taxes and passports, and even social gatherings.Volunteers are always needed to help grow our base, to reach out to find new friends, and to help get out the vote.
