    Global Presidential Primary | Vote in Amsterdam!

    Vote in Amsterdam on Super Tuesday! 
    Our Amsterdam Voting Center is open 4-9PM on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Drop by and vote in the Democratic Primary — for real! Voting is also possible by post and email. Details will be emailed to all Democrats Abroad members. Join Democrats Abroad today to vote in the Global Presidential Primary!

    -----

    REALLY?!? Yes. Democrats Abroad holds its own primary election. We send our own delegates to the Democratic Convention. And we have our say in choosing the Democratic nominee for president. Voting in the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary instead of your home state is easy for you — and good for all of us!

    EASY FOR YOU. No need to request a ballot and post it home again. Simply drop into your local Voting Center. Or download a ballot and email it back. You’ll still need to get an absentee ballot for the general election in November. But, for now, join US voters around the world and vote where you live.

    GOOD FOR ALL OF US. Concerned about issues like taxation, FATCA, or Social Security? Voting in the Global Primary shows Congress that we’re out here, in our millions, all around the globe. It gives Democrats Abroad the clout to lobby for us all and make a difference.

    NOTE: This is a primary for president only. To vote in local primary races, you can request a ballot from your state. If you do, leave the choice of presidential nominee blank. Don’t vote twice!

    Every vote counts! Join us in Leipzig on TWO days to cast your vote:

    • Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 from 4-9pm
    • Saturday, March 7th, 2020 from 10am-2pm

    Volunteer at the Primary

    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, 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, 2020, so stay tuned!

    I have questions about voting.

    Please email gotv@democratsabroad.org so we can help!

    I have other questions about the Global Primary in Leipzig.

    Please email berlin@democratsabroad.de and we’ll get back to you soon.

    I'm a journalist and would like to interview someone or cover the primary.

    Please email press@demsinberlin.de with your question or request, we'll be in touch right away.
