    Global Voter Assistance: October 25th

    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'll help you find the answers.  

    Join us October 25th, or any Sunday(24hrs), Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (noon-4pm) and Saturday (2am-10am) till November U.S. Eastern time to talk to a volunteer LIVE on Zoom about questions you have about voting from abroad.

    More information: The easiest way to request  your ballot is at VoteFromAbroad.org. It takes  just a few minutes to complete your form and  send it in to the US state where you last lived. If  you've never voted from abroad, the website will guide you step by step. In most cases it’s pretty simple. But if you’re new to overseas voting, 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.

    If you can’t make it any Sunday, 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 promptly.

    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.
