GLOBAL PHONEBANKING DAY
“USE YOUR VOTE”

August 26, 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment, the first step in ensuring US women the right to vote.  This battle continued through the Civil Rights Act of 1965, and the struggle faces us even today as we fight against voter suppression efforts.

On this day we will honor the women and their allies who did-- and continue to do--  work to bring full enfranchisement to all citizens of the United States.

On this day we commit ourselves, in countries throughout the world, to making (at the very least) 1920 calls to Americans living around the globe to urge them to register to vote, request their absentee ballots, complete them ballots correctly and return them immediately.

We’ll be calling people who are Democrats Abroad members and are receptive to our messages and grateful for our reminders.  You might also take the opportunity on this day to call other friends who need a bit of a nudge.

The goals? Make voters aware of www.VoteFromAbroad.org

Inspire voters to register/request their ballot immediately through the site and let them know where they can ask voting questions.  Urge voters to complete and return their ballots as soon as they receive them.

Ballot Day is September 19**!  Request yours today!
** US election officers send out overseas ballots by email or postal mail beginning September 19th.

NOTE:
On August 26, we will have a Facebook Live feed where we’ll post how many callers participated, how many calls they made and which countries and chapters had the highest participation and numbers of calls (adjusting for membership, of course).  We’ll recognize top callers in each region and report donation totals.  Funds raised will support our extensive, ongoing efforts to register US overseas voters, dramatically increase overseas voter turnout and help win elections in November.
