Welcome to Democrats Abroad Sweden!
DA Sweden (DAS) is part of Democrats Abroad, the official arm of the U.S. Democratic Party for the estimated 9 million Americans living outside the United States. Our mission is to mobilize the overseas vote to elect Democratic candidates in all US elections. Democrats Abroad is active in 54 countries throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, and is the largest volunteer-driven organization of Americans living abroad.
Get Involved for the 2024 Global Primary
For the 2024 Global Presidential Primary, we will be running Voting Centers in several areas of the country next March. If you have the time, we NEED VOLUNTEERS to help register voters and to remind those who are already registered to request their ballots.
Democrats Abroad had a significant impact in the 2020 election, providing the votes that put the Biden/Harris ticket over the top in Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin. To ensure continued Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, we’re determined to mobilize for the upcoming midterms in the same way so please sign up for phone-banking to help us reach fellow Democrats around the world and remind them to vote. It really works, so get involved – you can BE THE DIFFERENCE!
DA Sweden’s Chapters
DAS has active chapters in Skåne, Stockholm/Uppsala and Western Sweden, and we’re looking to organize chapters in other parts of the country as well! We’d love your participation if you want to help get a chapter off the ground closer to where you live
Get Involved with our Issue Advocacy
In addition to voter registration, we participate in Congressional advocacy on issues that matter to Americans abroad such as changing from citizenship-based to residence-based taxation or the ability to use Medicare benefits overseas.
DA also has many global issue-based caucuses any DA member can join. DA Sweden currently has active members who organize events in two caucuses:
- DAS Black Caucus - Click Here to Email
- DAS Progressive Caucus - Click to Contact Co-Chairs Eero Carroll & Mike Sappol
Getting involved with DA Sweden is a great way to meet like-minded Americans and enjoy social events, after-works, movie screenings, live online chats with U.S. political candidates, debate watch parties, and gatherings to see election returns roll in. Please join us at one of our local or virtual events or contact us to express your interest in volunteering. We hope to hear from you soon!
