    Northern Ireland Regional Meeting

    Join us for a virtual meeting of DAUK's Northern Ireland Regional Group. If you're a DAUK member living in Northern Ireland, we'd love to have you join us for a Zoom Meeting on Sunday, September 20, starting at 12pm. It's a great opportunity to meet other fellow Democrats local to you, and to learn how you can help effect change at the ballot box later this year.

    This first meeting will be led by Philip, one of our regional volunteers. We'll be discussing strategy and plans for Democrats Abroad's Get Out The Vote efforts in the run-up to the November 2020 elections, as well as brainstorming ways to get more locally based Americans involved. Please join us as we work to build our DAUK community.
    If you RSVP (link is below) we will contact you about future events and volunteer opportunities for the Northern Ireland Region.  The Zoom link will be sent out the morning of the event. 

    If you cannot attend but are interested in this group, please email secretary@democratsabroad.org.uk and ask us to sign you up!

    Global Voter Assistance: September 21st

    Did you know every eligible American living abroad can vote in U.S. elections this year? 

    Do you have questions about how to vote? Click the chat bubble at the bottom of this screen and we can help you find the answers.  

    Join us Monday September 21st to speak to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you're having about voting from abroad. We'll be here from 2-10pm CEST (Paris) / 8am-4pm (U.S. Eastern) 

    Ballots should be released by September 19th. If you didn't get your ballot (check your spam filter) or have questions, drop on by for advice on what to do next. 

    How is it done on Zoom? You'll come into the main room and be paired 1:1 with a volunteer into a breakout room to ensure privacy and that you can get all your questions answered. It couldn't be easier. 

    More information: The easiest way to request your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes just a few minutes to complete and send in your form to the US state where you last lived. The website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to voting abroad, or if you haven’t done it in a while, you may have additional questions. That’s why we’ll be here to help.

    If you can’t make it, you can always email us at helpdesk@votefromabroad.org or send in your question through our online help bubble, and a volunteer will get back to you.

    Outside London? We Want to Hear from You!

    Ahead of the Global Presidential Primary in March 2020, we'd like to build a community of DA members throughout the country, so that when the time comes for us to vote, we're ready and mobilized. Already we've heard from members in Berkshire, South Wales, and the Cotswolds. We're working to put together groups in these areas. We'll help you to provide organizing support from our Voter Registration and GOTV teams and explain the Global Presidential Primary in detail. Email vice-chair@democratsabroad.org.uk for more information.
