Join us as we travel across Europe in June and July registering Americans living abroad to vote by absentee ballot in the November 2012 US elections!
The Democrats Abroad Road Trip will register US citizens to vote in more than two dozen cities in Europe, providing information to voters and increasing motivation heading into this crucial election.
This registration drive is especially critical because US citizens abroad must now re-request their absentee ballot every election cycle!
As we criss-cross the continent, we hope to reach the estimated 1.6 million US citizens living in Europe. Press and social media will multiply our effects on a global scale as we spread our message to the more than six million US citizens living abroad.
Voting from abroad can make the difference.
Our votes tipped the balance toward a Democratic majority in Senator Jim Webb’s race in 2006, and President Obama’s 2008 win in North Carolina was largely attributed to Americans voting absentee from abroad.
The Road Trip will focus on registering, motivating, and educating voters, as we literally drive across Europe, rocking the vote!
