U.S. citizens living on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands can register for this fall’s presidential and other federal elections and exercise their right to vote.
Laws have changed and voters living abroad need to mail in a ballot request every federal election year. Voter registration day is June 16 and will help U.S. citizens also meet their state deadlines.
Registration takes place in Nanaimo at the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo, 595 Townsite Rd., from 1-3 p.m.
For more information, please call Lise Smith at 250-716-5821 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional registration sites include Victoria, Sidney, the West Shore, Denman Island, Salt Spring Island and Campbell River.
The events are organized by members of the Victoria chapter of Democrats Abroad, a non-profit, civic organization and part of Democrats Abroad, the official overseas branch of the U.S. Democratic Party.
Registration is open to all U.S. citizens regardless of political affiliation, as well as dual-citizens or multi-nationals.
