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.  You can register to vote and join DA by going to votefromabroad.org

    News

    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.
