As a proud resister, we know that you did everything you could to make sure your vote was counted, and you helped others vote too!
Our members voted at a rate 8x higher than in previous midterms. That’s turning out to be the biggest increase of any American voting bloc this year, and it’s all thanks to you.
While voting from abroad is easy for thousands of Americans outside the US, for many others, it’s not quite so seamless.
This week’s #TinyAction: Let us know about your voting experience and encourage other Americans abroad to do the same.
1. Complete our short Voter Protection Survey here.
2. Spread the word so we can hear from as many Americans abroad as possible.
WHY IT MATTERS
In order for us to do everything we can to make it easier for all Americans to vote from abroad, we need to understand your 2018 voting experience — what problems you encountered, what worked well, and even if you weren’t able to vote.
We also need to hear from as many people as possible to get a clear picture of the state of overseas voting. That means reaching out beyond our members and volunteers. We won’t ask about political affiliation, and we won’t use any personal information for purposes outside this survey, so please share with all Americans you know and tell them how important it is that we hear about their experience.
