    Global Primary Volunteer Training (Feb 24)

    Have you signed up to volunteer at Global Presidential Primary in Berlin on March 3rd or March 8th, 2020?

    Thank you for taking part in making the voting center possible in Berlin! To volunteer on one of these days, we ask that you also attend this volunteer training session to learn more about what the Global Primary is about and what to expect as a volunteer.

    We hope the primary will be a big event, so we want to answer as many questions in advance and provide clarification about what your role will be, whether you're helping out as a greeter, check-in, voter registration, ballot observer, ballot counter, or other kind volunteer.

    If you haven't yet signed up to volunteer, you can sign up for shifts here:

    Please RSVP so we can make sure to accommodate everyone who wants to attend the training.

    If you can't join us on Monday, February 24th, 2020, there are two other volunteer training sessions:
