Senator Bernie Sanders is the winner of the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary, winning 69% of the vote and 9 of 13 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won 31% of the vote and the remaining 4 delegates. A total of 34,570 Americans around the world voted in the GPP, breaking the previous record set in 2008 by more than 50%!
Here in Belgium, Sanders won a total 227 votes to Clinton's 150. We owe huge thanks to all of our volunteers who helped run our two polling centers over three days of voting - and a special thanks to Voting Manger Tiffany Fliss for all of her hard work in organizing everything so well.
