Print and sign the form and then send it to your election office to ensure you will receive a ballot for the election. Many states accept scanned forms by email or fax.

No elections in your jurisdiction? Take action by joining Democrats Abroad phonebanking to support Democrats running in the New Jersey and Virginia State Elections, as well as the Special Election for Florida's State Senate 40th District. These are the first phonebanking campaigns for the Fall elections — with more to come. The phonebanking campaigns will start on Friday, August 18 to coincide with the Democratic Party's "Weekend of Action". And to sweeten the pie, DA is giving away our famous "donkey bags" to any phonebanking volunteers who make more than 30 calls this weekend (from Friday through Sunday evening Pacific Time).

→ New volunteers: Follow the instructions to sign up for phonebanking.
