A lively crowd gathered at Merchant's Pub on Wednesday to talk about impeachment, voter registration, and how we can be part of the solution needed to ensure the survival of our nation's democracy and the planet itself. Our own Kathy Sherretts opened the gathering and then turned it over to our featured speaker from Democrats Abroad.
JIM MERCEREAU, CHAIR, DEMOCRATS ABROAD SPAIN was our featured speaker.
Jim walked us through the process of registering, requesting a ballot, and voting via the Vote from Abroad website. Although it is operated by Democrats Abroad, like all US voter registration efforts, this website is non-partisan and and operates in the spirit of open democracy, welcoming all Americans living overseas to register and cast their absentee ballots. Here's the process:
1. Go to Vote from Abroad (votefromabroad.org).
2. Click START to fill out the form (known as FPCA: Federal Post Card Application) to register to vote (do this annually!) and request your ballot, which will arrive by email.
3. Check the State Voting Guide to review your state's deadlines and requirements.
4. Vote! Democracy depends on each one of us speaking up for what we believe in!
