Keep Calm and Mobilize the Expat Vote
In close races, the number of overseas voters can determine the winner and the future of our country. I was shocked to learn that Democrats Abroad set their 2020 voter turnout goal at a measly 20% of eligible Americans living overseas— which is double the paltry 10% it’s been in the past. This is NOT a typical election, and we can’t afford to let 5,500,000 eligible expat voters sit this one out.
Want to help mobilize those votes? Work with Vote From Abroad.
Here’s an idea: forward this newsletter to any expat friends who may not be planning to vote.
