An informal group of Americans gathered over coffee on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon on the V&A Waterfront, under the gaze of Table Mountain, to chat about the American situation.
DAZA Cape Town is back!
Frustrated watching political scandals from afar, concerned men and women expressed their thoughts and feelings about needing to be heard and share with like-minded friends.
We discussed the possibilities and methods to vote from South Africa, where Americans may be located, and how to find them to let them know they can vote. There was discussion of parties and events, perhaps in collaboration with one of the local universities!
The group in Cape Town will organize informal gatherings for people who are interested to share ideas and discuss ways to get people registered, and ultimately to vote. DAZA Cape Town will advise prospective voters about the VoteFromAbroad.org
website in time for them to cast their ballots next year.
We will be able to answer queries about state-specific voting regulations and engage in the polls, from the primaries to the crucial November 2020 election.
A platform for Americans in Cape Town has been established.
Are you interested in joining this group of Americans dedicated to positive change?
Will you attend a gathering in Cape Town (or Joburg)?
We want to hear your ideas!
