Sawasdee khap!

Democrats Abroad Thailand (DAT) is official country committee for US Democrats living in Thailand. We have three official chapters, in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and the North, and Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard, and an up and coming Mekong Chapter to cover the northeast of the country. DAT is holding debate parties, film nights, policy seminars and social get-togethers to encourage Americans in Thailand to get involved in supporting our great Democratic candidates and debating the issues that concern us as Americans, and we invite you to join the discussion.

You can find us on Facebook at Democrats Abroad Thailand and Democrats Abroad Chiang Mai or on Twitter @DemsUSAThailand and @DemsAbroadThai

Come join the Party! I look forward to welcoming you at the next DAT event!

    Democrats in Bangkok Get Out the Vote at the Annual Independance Day Picnic

    +

    Democrats Abroad volunteers were out in force at the annual American Chamber of Commerce Independence Day picnic.  

    A highly anticipated event within the American expat community in Bangkok, this year's attendance was as big as ever with over 2,000  showing up for music, games and good food.    The computers were humming at the DA table with Americans requesting absentee ballots.  Printers were available so that everyone could print and sign their requests, place it in an addressed envelope and send it to the Embassy for mailing.   Old friends joined the effort and many new faces came by to see how they could get involved in making the blue wave happen here in Thailand.
