Don’t miss your chance to vote in person this presidential year! Join thousands of US citizens like you, living abroad, who will participate in this year’s Global Presidential Primary through Democrats Abroad.
About the Global Presidential Primary (GPP)
Who is eligible to participate?
Democrats Abroad has just a few requirements for voting in the primary:
- Be abroad and be a U.S. citizen
- Be a member of Democrats Abroad
- Be 18 as of November 3, 2020
- Not have voted, or plan to vote, in any other 2020 state presidential primary
What if I’m not a member of Democrats Abroad?
You can sign up today, or on the day of the primary.
I can’t attend the event but want to vote. What can I do?
If you can’t join us in person, as long as you’re a member of Democrats Abroad, you can also vote remotely. Look for your primary ballot in your inbox on February 18.
I vote in California. Can I vote in the Global Presidential Primary and the California primary?
You can only vote in the presidential primary once. That means that if you vote in the GPP but also want to vote in California for the down-ballot primary races (such as for your congressperson), you can! Just skip the presidential question on your California ballot.
I have already requested/received my overseas absentee ballots for this year from California. Why should I participate in the GPP instead of voting in the California presidential primary?
While thousands and thousands of people will participate in the GPP this year, millions will vote in your home state. That means that, as an individual, your vote in the Global Presidential Primary is more powerful than if you were to vote in California -- in fact, 4 times more powerful!
Who will win the Global Presidential Primary?
That’s up to you to decide! We’ll be announcing the results of our primary on March 23, so stay tuned!
