We voted, we campaigned, we debated, we made calls, we texted, we followed the news, and now election night is finally around the corner! Join us for happy hour on election night (online) and in-person at the Count the Votes Rally the next day.

Let’s get the important stuff out of the way:

Have you received your absentee ballot? 

If not, fill out a backup ballot. Stop reading this email and do it NOW. Get help below. Go to votefromabroad.orgright away!


Need help? Get Online Voting Help

Every day through Election Day, there’s online live voter assistance. You can also reply to this email and we’ll direct you to the right place.

Return your ballot!

  • If your state requires you to mail back a paper ballot, we have up-to-date advice on how to return your ballot from Germany (section 4).
  • If your state allows email or fax return (over half do), we strongly recommend using that method!

Count the Votes Rally

We are gathering peacefully at Brandenburger Gate (Platz des 18. März side) at 12:00 on November 4th, 2020 to send a message: we demand to see a democratic United States that counts its votes!

The spirit of this rally is: hoping for a landslide, preparing to demand that the votes be counted.

This demonstration is confirmed with the Berlin Police. We will abide by the strictest public health and hygiene measures, including masks and social distancing (even outside!).

Swing the election: Call & remind Americans to vote!

It’s not too late to start calling. There are states like Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, and several more where voters can still request ballots and vote!

One of the most effective ways to volunteer is by calling crucial voters in swing states and where ballots can still be returned. Call to offer a friendly reminder and motivation to a fellow voter. You can call from home, all you need is a computer!
