Please come join us to watch the upcoming Democratic Presidential Primary Debate on Tuesday, February 25th. And get help with remote voting in the Global Presidential Primary.
We’re back at the Carlton House in Oak Bay for another great Democratic Debate--the last one before Super Tuesday and Democrats Abroad’s Global Presidential Primary (GPP),which runs from March 3 to 10!
DA will be sending out an email on February 18th with a link to your GPP ballot. The email will include instructions for sending it back in, either by email or postal mail (or voting in-person at the DAVI Voting Centre on March 7th).
If you have any questions about voting in the GPP or your home state’s elections, or need any help sending in your GPP ballot, please come to the Debate Watch and we’ll have volunteers ready to assist! *This is not an official polling station, but an opportunity to pick up your remote ballot and get help sending it in.
