Don’t miss your chance to vote in person this presidential year! Join thousands of U.S. citizens living abroad who will participate in this year’s Global Presidential Primary through Democrats Abroad. You need to be a member of Democrats Abroad to vote in the GPP. If you are not a member, you can sign up today at www.democratsabroad.org/join or on the day of the primary at the venue. Voting in the GPP means that you can still vote for down-ballot candidates on your state ballot; leave the presidential box empty if you vote with us.
Just a reminder, If you have not yet requested your absentee ballot, please do so at votefromabroad.org.
Join us in Hannover on TWO days to cast your vote:
- Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 from 3 pm - 6 pm
- Sunday, March 8th, 2020 from 11 am - 3 pm
Volunteer at the Primary
We need volunteers at the Hannover voting center to help with setup, greeting, registration, ballot box observing, ballot counting, and clean-up. Please contact the Hannover Precinct Captain at [email protected] or fill out the following Volunteer Survey.
Your voice and vote in the Global Primary show the presidential candidates, Congress, and the DNC that Democrats Abroad is here to make a difference! From issues like taxation, immigration, healthcare, and beyond, our votes matter. Democrats Abroad sends delegates to the Democratic National Convention who vote for candidates in proportion to the results of our Global Presidential Primary. Thousands of overseas Americans will participate in the DA Global Presidential Primary, but millions will vote in your home state, making your vote that much more powerful!
We look forward to seeing you in person as you make your voice heard!
Please invite and share this link with your American friends and colleagues. RSVP (not required but appreciated) on this page.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ➜
Here are some common questions about Democrats Abroad's global presidential primary. If you don't see your question here, get in touch!
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 years old as of November 3, 2020
- Not have voted, or plan to vote, in any other 2020 state presidential primary (see below for more details)
What if I’m not a member of Democrats Abroad?
You can sign up today, or on the day of the primary: https://www.democratsabroad.org/join
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, 2020.
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 Global Primary 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 received my overseas absentee ballots for this year from California. Why should I participate in the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary instead of voting in the California presidential primary?
While thousands and thousands of people will participate in the Global Presidential Primary this year, millions will vote in your home state. That means that, as an individual, your primary vote with Democrats Abroad is more powerful than if you were to vote in California -- in fact, four 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, 2020, so stay tuned!
