Did you know 80% of French expats did not vote at the 2012 parliamentary elections?

French expats can change the course of the upcoming French parliamentary elections. There are between 2 and 2.5 million French expats,  representing 3% of all voters. Elections have been won across the world with a smaller margin.

The Problem: 

French expats don't always know how to vote. Most people don't know if they are registered to vote abroad or in France. Most people miss the deadline for completing a proxy ("procuration"). As a result, abstention for parliamentary elections among French expats registered abroad is at 80% (2012 data) vs 43% for mainland France.

Who are we?

We are a collective of French expatriate volunteers. We are NOT affiliated with any political movements or parties, and we intend to keep it that way.  We are also 100% non-partisan, we will not support specific candidates. Our goal is to fight against French expatriate abstention. 

What do we do about it?

We want to encourage French expats to come to the consulate as soon as possible to complete a proxy ("procuration") as that is their only way to vote if they are not registered to vote abroad on D-Day.  We also want to close the information gap about the preparation needed to be ready to vote on election day.

How do we achieve that?

We built an information discovery tool about the election: allonsvoter.org

We broadcast messages on social media platforms to raise awareness around the voting process.

Help us help French expats vote in the upcoming elections. 

How will we use the funds?

All of our volunteers are unpaid, and none of the proceeds will go to them. We will use donations to:

  • Support our website allonsvoter.org (hosting, emails, other tech costs) which explains in very simple terms to French expats the different ways they can vote.
  • Produce and promote content to raise awareness with French expats and drive traffic to allonsvoter.org through paid ads on Facebook and Google Adwords.

Every donation counts! Please donate:

  • 10 USD to help us reach up to 10,000 French expats
  • 20 USD to help us reach up to 20,000 French expats
  • 50 USD to help us reach up to 50,000 French expats
  • 100 USD to help us reach up to 100,000 French expats
  • 200 USD to help us reach up to 200,000 French expats
