Take the Pledge!

U.S. VOTERS OVERSEAS:

YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE.

WE WILL HELP YOU USE IT IN 2020.

I'm in. I pledge to register to vote & request a ballot in 2020.




How It Works

1
TAKE THE PLEDGE

U.S. citizens living abroad must request a ballot every election year. We make registering and requesting your ballot—and voting—easy. Fill out the form above, and let us know how you wish to be contacted: via email, telephone, or SMS.

2
RECEIVE VOTER INFO

When it's time to request your ballot and when it's time to vote, our volunteers, fellow U.S. citizens living overseas, will contact you. You can expect 2-3 timely election reminders from us each election year.

3
REQUEST A BALLOT & VOTE

Vote and make your voice heard. We'll always be available to answer questions you may have about requesting your ballot, returning your ballot, and making sure your vote was counted.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is this thing?

Pledge to Reg (“Pledge to Register”) is a web site that allows you to sign up and agree to be contacted (via email, phone call or text message) to help you register to vote in 2020. It is hosted in the United States and created and maintained by American volunteers living in Europe.


Who will contact me, when, and how?

An American citizen volunteer will contact you via email, phone call or text message 2-4 times each election year to remind you to register to vote, get a ballot for your home state (where you vote), fill it in, and return it before your state’s registration and voting deadlines.


Is my data private?

Yes. Pledge to Reg takes only the information you provide and stores it in an encrypted, secure database, accessing the data only to contact you when the time comes to exercise your civic duty. Data is kept in US servers, where the website is hosted. We follow GDPR guidelines, and your data is not shared with any third parties. For more information, you can read our privacy policy.


Can I opt out of being contacted?

Absolutely. Email communications will offer an opt out, and if you ask in a phone or text exchange to not be contacted again, we will remove you from future contacts.


I’m already a member of Democrats Abroad. Should I sign up here?

Pledge to Reg data is separate from Democrats Abroad membership data, and is not cross-checked. If you are a member of Democrats Abroad, and you also sign up for Pledge to Reg, you are likely to be contacted by volunteers from both.


Who should sign up for Pledge to Reg?

Anyone who wants to be sure to receive reminders about when and how to vote from abroad, especially Americans living overseas who are not already members of Democrats Abroad. Anyone is welcome to sign up; the information you will receive about when and how to vote from abroad is non-partisan.
