Democrats Abroad Thailand (DAT) is the official country committee for US Democrats living in Thailand.  We provide opportunities for Americans in Thailand to get involved in the Democratic party and issues that matter to them. These are trying times and it will take all of us to fight back.   US citizens around the world are organizing for a fairer and more just America that embraces diversity- let's raise our voices together and be heard all the way from Thailand.

We support our great Democratic candidates and encourage discussion about the ideas and solutions they offer through debate watch parties, post-debate discussions, live chats with the candidates.   We host political pub nights to get your political banter on, Ladies Night, issue based call-congress parties,  film nights,

If you are specifically interested in racial justice, gender equality and/ or  LGBTQ rights - join one or all of our Caucuses here on the website and then follow us on FB : Black Caucus and  Women's Caucus.

We have three official chapters, in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and the North, and Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard.  We are always looking to grow our chapter network so if you are interested in organizing for social justice- let me know!

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

I look forward to welcoming you at the next DAT event.

    GA Senate Election Voter Assistance

    GA voters who need a little help getting their ballots in- drop by for some coffee and help! We have envelopes, computers, tape, USPS lables, glue and know how. Please bring a passport if you intend to drop it off at the embassy after and if possible print out your materials and bring them with you. We have blank FWABs if needed.

    Both US Senate races in Georgia are going to a run-off election on January 5th, 2021. Ballots will not be available until Nov 21, GA has said they would send out ballot even if the recount isn't finished.
    The two races are:

    US Senate: Jon Ossoff (Democrat) versus David Perdue (Republican)

    US Senate Special: Raphael Warnock (Democrat) versus Kelly Loeffler (Republican)


    🗳️ If you didn't vote in the November election, you can still vote in the run-off. Go to https://www.votefromabroad.org/ and request an absentee ballot or register to vote. Ask for your ballot to be sent to you by email. If you will be 18 years old by Jan 5, you can also vote.

    🏴 If you voted in November, check your absentee ballot status: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do

    ✍️ Fill out and mail back a Federal Write-in Absentee Ballot, FWAB at https://www.votefromabroad.org/fwab/. Ballot return to Georgia is by postal mail only, so hurry. Because of the mail disruptions from COVID and Christmas, voters should mail back their ballots ASAP. Regular mail may work in November, but by Dec it'll be too late and you should definitely use a courier. Because the FWAB isn't set up for 2 Senate races, check out this example on how to fill it out: https://www.democratsabroad.org/de_georgia_senate_run_off
