At our August meeting two weeks ago, we started assembling local voter outreach teams in Berlin. Couldn’t make it? To get involved with tabling, flyering, and other organizing, email volunteers@demsinberlin.de so Theresa (Berlin’s volunteer coordinator) can connect you with the Kiez captain¬†for your neighborhood.

ūü§ďWe’re halfway through August, it’s time for our new tradition of online¬†American pub quiz!¬†Wednesday¬†evening, join players in Berlin; Germany; and beyond for great trivia and a good cause (raising funds for voter outreach in Germany). We’ll even throw in a convention update from Berlin chair & delegate Diego Rivas. Bring teammates or come on your own ‚Äď we’ll match you up.
‚ĖļRSVP for quiz night now

Reminder: if you or a friend need help registering to vote, you can drop in every Sunday for direct one-on-one help on Zoom. We also have upcoming Kiez events where you can get help as well!

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, we’re hosting Progressive Palates, a virtual wine tasting and fundraiser. Not sure which wines you like, or how to pick a bottle for a given occasion? This introduction to wine tasting is for you!

News You Can Use

#SaveThePostOffice

> Call Your Congressional Reps
> Email USPS Board of Governors

A robust and functioning post office is an essential service, for medicine, for Social Security checks, and yes, also for voting by mail. Take a stand against the current administration’s hobbling of this quintessentially American institution to suppress the vote. Call on your congressional representatives to investigate and write each member of the United States Post Office Board of Governors to remove Louis DeJoy (click the links above).

Bonus: Ask Democratic governors to allow emailed ballot return for Americans abroad

Have you requested your absentee ballot THIS YEAR?

We’re¬†11 weeks from the 2020 election. If you haven’t registered to vote and requested your absentee ballot this year, it’s time. Make sure to do it now so there’s time for your ballot to get here and to travel back to the U.S.

Visit VoteFromAbroad.org to complete a ballot request — and then send in that request!

Get trained: Help Americans abroad vote!

You can learn how to assist fellow Americans with voting and absentee ballot requests at a voter registration training! The more voter registration volunteers and phone bankers, the higher the overseas turnout in November will be.
