How do I vote for Martha?

What is the DPCA or Democratic Party Committee Abroad?
Democrats Abroad (“DA”) is the overseas arm of the US Democratic Party, and is treated like a State Party by the DNC. Per the DA Charter, the DPCA body is the highest authority of Democrats Abroad — this body is composed of DPCA Members who are elected every two years to represent their Country Committees (or in some cases, geographical groupings organized as country committees). These “CC” or Country Committee elections are conducted locally in the Spring of 2023 (almost all to be completed by May, prior to the AGM in June.)
If you are a DPCA Voter, please commit to attending the AGM either in person or virtually and voting for Martha.
If you cannot attend the AGM please commit to proxying your vote to someone who will be sure to vote as you instruct. If you need help with this, please contact us here.
What about DPCA Non-Voting Members or Alternates?
Many Country Committees will elect Alternates or Non-voting DPCA representatives, who per the DA Charter are full members of the DPCA in every respect except that they do not carry a vote intrinsically themselves. As DPCA members they may otherwise participate fully in matters of the DPCA, and they may also carry up to three proxies.
What if I'm not part of the DPCA? How to I make my voice heard
