United Kingdom

Democrats Abroad United Kingdom (DAUK) is the official country committee for U.S. Democrats living in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. We have many activities throughout the year, including speakeasies, film screenings, panel discussions, voter registration events, one of the largest Independence Day Picnics outside of the United States, and much more. 

If you are a U.K.-based American and would like to get involved, first join Democrats Abroad (it's free!) so you'll hear about all of our activities. 

We look forward to meeting you!

    2020 Starts Now: Voter Registration Wants You!

    The GOTV team had a recap meeting of our 2018 efforts in December. In short, with the help and support of DA International, the DAUK ExComm, committee chairs and other members, our team held well over 100 drives in 2018. We registered more voters, especially students, went to more locations outside London and held more repeat drives than ever before. The upshot is we want to do more of what we did in 2018 and do it better. Absentee ballots made the difference in key races in 2018. We hope to replicate and amplify that success in 2020. DAUK members interested in helping at any level, please email gotv@democratsabroad.org.uk. A spring planning meeting will be confirmed, and drives will start in January 2020.
