    News: 🇺🇸Global Primary: ✅Welcome to our new members! 🎉Postponing upcoming events

    The Global Presidential Primary was a huge success! In the last two weeks, over 1200 new members have joined Democrats Abroad in and around Berlin (including in Leipzig, Jena, Potsdam, and Dresden), with similar increases in the rest of Germany.

    Since many of you are hearing from us for the first time, here's quick rundown of what our 100% volunteer-powered group does, besides primary voting centers.

    What is Democrats Abroad in Berlin?

    As your local Democrats Abroad chapter, our mission is to help Americans living outside the U.S. exercise their right to vote. This includes

    • voter registration events
    • phone banking
    • and other voter outreach initiatives

    In addition to helping you register to vote and request absentee ballots, we also organize speakers, panels, film screenings, and discussions to keep you connected with current political issues. Finally, Democrats Abroad Berlin also hosts events for the American community, like 4th of July and Thanksgiving parties, all with the goal of helping people stay involved and engaged in U.S. political process while living in Germany.

    Besides these emails (which we send out a few times a month), you can stay in touch with us on social media, too:

    Record-Breaking Global Primary Turnout

    On each of the voting center days in Berlin, over 500 people voted! On Super Tuesday, Berlin had the biggest turnoutout of all Democrats Abroad polling centers. Thank you all for taking the time to cast your vote in the presidential primary. Here are a few photos (Facebook)

    Thank you as well to all the volunteers who helped with distributing ballots, setting up, cleaning up, directing voters, tallying votes, helping people register to vote, and many more crucial roles. It was a huge, collective effort, and we couldn't have done it without everyone's support.

    Upcoming Events Postponed ➜ Online Organizing

    In line with the rest of Democrats Abroad Germany & public health regulations, we're postponing all events until further notice. 

    We encourage you to stay home as much as possible, avoid any non-essential gatherings, and keep in touch with friends and neighbors for mutual support.

    We’re currently looking into which of our events can be held online, and what tools to use. We’ll keep you posted and reassess at the end of the month about April events. Take care of each other.
