We are making it easier for American citizens to exercise their right to vote from the U.A.E.


The AmCham Abu Dhabi's U.S. - U.A.E. Public Affairs Committee in coordination with the U.S. Mission to the U.A.E. is hosting a voter registration information day for the upcoming mid-term elections. As proud Americans living abroad, we should participate in this important component of citizenship and get registered to vote in our participating jurisdictions. There will be a quick brief followed by a very simple question and answer session.


Three main items will be covered:

  1. When in doubt, register to vote.
  2. FVAP.gov has all the info to register, state by state.
  3. Email will be provided for questions related to voting.


The U.S Embassy's Voting Assistance Officer will be on the virtual call to answer any questions you may have about registering to vote or casting your ballot from overseas.
