AWC Berlin joins FAWCO (www.fawco.org) to Get out the Vote in 2018. Did you know that out of 8 million US citizens living overseas (and 2,8 million eligible voters), there were only 97,000 ballots sent in in the last Presidential election? That’s less than 4% of eligible voters. In downballot elections, the number is even much lower.
The 2018 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. All 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. 39 state and territorial governorships and numerous other state and local elections will also be contested.
So make your voice heard!
Voting is now easier than ever before. U.S. citizens can register to vote ONLINE and receive an absentee ballot by email, fax, or internet download, depending on the state they are eligible to vote in. Depending on your voting state, you would most likely have to register EVERY YEAR. If you have not lived in the US for a while, use your LAST known address in the US (even if the building does not exist anymore).
