Question for Americans:Voting?


Today was the US Embassy's "Get Out The Vote" day. Did anyone attend?

I just returned home after mailing my ballot and ballot confirmation for the November 6 election at the Post Office. Simple service costs 115ARS.
I did, completed the three forms (ballot request, FPCA, and the back-up write-in ballot), and dropped in their box. Per the embassy team, the forms will be organized tomorrow and sent to the appropriate state mailing addresses. Pretty easy, but time consuming for the back-up ballot since you had to hand write all the candidates for which you voted and their respective prospective positions.

Also saw some familiar faces there. Not too much a meet-and-greet like the usual ones since the primary goal was to encourage voting.
On the FPCA I submitted in 2016 and 2018, I checked the box -- "I am a US citizen living outside the country, and my return in uncertain" which has been the case for many years. I inquired a few days ago why my ballot didn't include the office of Governor, only Representative for my Congressional district. It was explained that since I may not return to the country, I am ineligible to vote in state offices. I sent my FPCA in the US Embassy pouch in January, and it was never received, so I couldn't vote in the primary. That's why I mailed my ballot to the County Clerk this week and intend to check with them in two or three weeks about its delivery.

I just got an American History lesson from this video on how undemocratic the Senate is.

Today's the day!

This is the first I've heard about the existence of DA Argentina after many years.

Let’s reconnect!
Good Morning Democrats Abroad. Since our reformation earlier this year we have added so many new members and registered 300 new voters. Now that the hard work is done ( for now) with the midterms finishing today, we would love a chance get together to reconnect, discuss the election results, and plan for future. That’s why we are inviting you to our Post-Midterm Mayhem Meet and Greet at Hell’s Pizza, Thursday, Nov. 8th at 7pm. (We will be in the larger backroom.) You can RSVP on our Facebook page.

We would love if you could come and don't forget your friends are welcome.


Andrew Milton,
Chair of Democrats Abroad Argentina and the Executive Committee
