April 23 Voting Workshop

2018 Mid-Term Elections


Are you a U.S. Citizen in Panama who wants to volunteer to help other fellow Citizens register to vote in the 2018 U.S. mid-term elections?  If so, the U.S. Embassy is hosting a Voting Assistance Workshop on Monday, April 23, from 1-4 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Balboa.                                                                            


Participation in the electoral process, regardless of political affiliation, is a right of citizenship that ties us together as Americans.  And yet many Americans living overseas do not vote, often because they do not understand the absentee voting process or how to register to vote.  Voting overseas is simpler than you may think.  Because each state has different requirements, however, it’s important to understand the processes.  This workshop will provide participants with the information, resources, and tools needed to successfully aid other U.S. Citizens to participate in the electoral process from overseas.


The Voting Assistance Workshop is an interactive, hands-on training session led by a Washington-based official of the Federal Voters Assistance Program (FVAP). 


When:  April 23 (Monday) from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.  (Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early.)


Where:   The Elks Lodge

      Calle Rosas Palacios, Same Building as Bon Profit Restaurant, Balboa                


*Parking is limited in the neighborhood. 


Who:  All private U.S. citizens living in Panama who want to help other U.S. citizens register to vote.  Space is limited to 60 persons.


How:  Please RSVP by April 20 to Panama-ACS@state.gov.   A U.S. passport will be required for entry.


We look forward to seeing you at the workshop on April 23!
