Voting Rights for Americans Born Abroad

During the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA Democrats Abroad reached out to delegates from these 14 states that do not recognize the voting rights of US Citizens born overseas who have not lived in the US:  Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah.

We are pleased that New Jersey changed their voter registration laws in 2017 and now permits New Jersey citizens living abroad to vote.  The other 13 states still disenfranchise citizens born abroad who have never lived in the US.  This has got to change!
