US CITIZENS IN SYDNEY TO PARTICIPATE IN “AMERICA CAN DO BETTER – 1,000 POINTS OF HOPE” CANDLIGHT VIGIL – Thursday 2 September, 7.30pm Martin PlaceUS citizens in Sydney will join their fellow Democrats and Kerry supporters across America, across the battleground states, across New York, and around the world, when they gather in Martin Place for the “America Can Do Better - 1000 Points of Hope” candlelight vigil on 7.30pm, Thursday, September 2nd — the evening that President George W Bush speaks at the Republican National Convention.

Speakers at the vigil will include Ambassador Pete Peterson, America's first post-war Ambassador to Vietnam, and the Asia-Pacific Chair of Americans Overseas for Kerry, assisting Democrats Abroad Australia to get out the vote in what may prove to be the most important US presidential election of our lifetime.

US citizens must register to vote by absentee ballot by 15 September 2004 or risk losing the opportunity to vote in the November General Election.

US citizens who have not yet registered to vote are encouraged to attend the candlelight vigil where Democrats Abroad Australia will be registering voters.

US citizens can also register to vote by filling out a Federal Post Card Application which is available from the Consulate, from Democrats Abroad Australia or on www.overseasvote2004.com.
