Like Democrats Abroad around the world, DAGRs can nominate our candidates for the November election by voting in our home states. Or, as members of Democrats Abroad, we are also eligible to vote in the Global Presidential Primary. And there are good reasons why we should!
This means we can vote on two different ballots, BUT we can only vote ONCE for each office. While it may sound confusing, it’s really quite easy. Here’s how:
- Register to vote in your home state and request your ballot. You’ll want the Primary ballot, now, and the General one sent in the autumn. Go to www.votefromabroad.org and follow the instructions.
- Ask for your ballot to be sent by email or fax for fastest delivery. When it arrives, follow the instructions that come with it to vote and send it back.
- On your state Primary ballot, mark the House and Senate candidates (or down-ballot races if your local election officlal determines you can).
- Leave the Presidential box blank on the state ballot!
- Vote for a Presidential candidate in the DA GPP, between now and March 8.
- In Greece, the Voting Center will be in Athens on Sunday, March 6. Come, vote, meet friends, and argue politics! Watch for email with the location and open hours.
- If you can’t make it to the Voting Center, you can order a GPP ‘remote ballot. ’ Download a remote ballot at http://www.democratsabroad.org/gpp and follow the instructions.
Remember, however you decide to vote, you can only vote for each office ONE TIME. So, do NOT send in a GPP remote ballot and then try to vote again at the Voting Center ‘just to be sure.’ If you do, they’ll both be invalid. But, you can still come to the Voting Center and be part of the action.
Now it's YOUR turn to decide!
