Democrats Abroad-Hamburg provided voting station on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 11am to 6pm around the corner from the Rathaus in Hamburg at the Julius-Leber-Forum (Friedrich Ebert Stiftung). The organizing team expected approximately 100 voters, and even more showed up -- a significant increase from the last GPP in 2016. NDR covered the event, which you can see here.

Election Night 2020 is a sequel of sorts to Neuland, with new stories and perspectives from Americans from even more diverse backgrounds and genders reflecting on the events of the last four years.
It’s not a typical Election Night, but in the United States it is traditional to host an Election Night Party at home or at a bar. How else could we spend this night waiting for our fate to be sealed? American director Julia Hart and a cast of US citizens invite you to spend Election Night with them on Zoom.“Election Night” is all at once a performance, Election Night party, and a trip through time. With a mix of personal stories, scenes, and songs Julia Hart and her ensemble of Americans abroad reflect the most significant moments, impressions, and feelings from the last four years while the latest election results and forecasts come together.What have the last four years done to us and to the world? What can we laugh about? What do we need to cry about? What makes us tremble in anger? And how have we coped in the last four years?
Tickets available here. Prices range from 4€ to 12€:
