Season 4, Episode 23. If you are a US citizen, even if you live abroad, you ARE eligible to vote. And you SHOULD vote.
Historically, US Americans living abroad have horrible voter turn out: roughly 7%. US Americans living in Germany have a slightly better but still awful turn out of 17%. In just two months, there is a presidential election in the United States that will impact the history of not only America but the world. It is more important than ever that Americans living abroad participate in their civic duty and vote.
Candice works with Democrats Abroad Germany and Vote from Abroad. She's here to tell us how to vote from abroad, why to vote from abroad, and what deadlines to keep in mind. We also share some of our favorite news sources, to help other American expats stay informed with current events even from afar.
