Democrats Abroad is the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States. They work to advance the principles of the Party by spreading the Democratic message to US voters in other countries and encouraging them to vote for Democratic candidates back home.
Democrats Abroad has committees throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These Country Committees keep Americans abroad informed of their rights and help them participate in the U.S. political process. A support office is maintained in Washington, D.C.
Democrat Abroad’s Mission is to:
Assist Americans living abroad to vote in U.S. elections, inform them of their voting rights and procedures, and encourage their participation in the American political process.
Help elect Democrats in U.S. elections.
Increase the awareness and responsiveness of U.S. government officials and elected representatives to the concerns of Americans living abroad.
Protect and enhance the right to vote for Americans abroad.
Grow and develop Democrats Abroad by encouraging participation in country committees, chapters, and at the global level, and by raising awareness of issues that concern Americans living abroad.
Work with Democratic Party organizations to achieve their goals.
