"Fight for the things you care about. But do it in a way that will lead other people to join you". --Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Are there any better words to describe the way Connie has conducted herself over the last 35 years for Democrats Abroad?

the political forum was initially non partisan, but always heavily democratic leaning.

Katie Solon
01:48:23
AZ, too — We’re going to beat them in AZ and we also have a Republican legislature.
Ada Shen
01:49:31
We discussed this possibility of the House deciding the election on Political Forum with Jean Pierre, just before the DA France AGM
Joe Smallhoover
01:49:40
This is why Doug Glucroft's comment about down ticket elections are key
Ada Shen
01:50:13
And why DA France has been messaging flippable Pres, Senate and State Legislature races.
Jayne De Sesa
01:51:44
That’s what frightens me and others the most — the Supreme Court as an adjunct to the White House.

Connie, setting aside all of this politics stuff, I am raising a glass and toasting your commitment, your hospitality (in an apartment that starts in the 6th and seems to end in the 16th)and your general wonderfulness. Best wishes to you - and Dom! Art

Go to https://www.votefromabroad.org/states/
Jayne De Sesa

For voting, each state has it’s own challenges such as the ballot from NY. When printed, according to the BOE instructions, we need to “fit to page” which make the ballot text almost unreadable. Also there are late changes about then votes are counted and up-to-the minute changes and time-tables. Ballotpedia is a good source. I hope that DA can hook into that, as needed.
Julia Bryan
02:09:37
then choose your state and scroll to the bottom of the page to find links to where's my ballot, etc
Julia Bryan

Jayne De Sesa
02:11:23
