    If you are 18 on or before January 5th you are allowed to vote in the runoff election.

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 every Sunday until election day to help.

    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.
