Presidential primary voting continued on Saturday the 7th of March at Oodi, with packed crowds of young and old alike, excited to vote for the first time in Finland as American citizens.
Finland's first ever in-person Voting Center was held on Super Tuesday for the Democratic presidential primary, March 3rd, in Helsinki's beautiful Oodi Central Library. We had a great turnout and ample enthusiasm from volunteers and voters alike.
Join us for Finland's Country Committee's first Global Presidential Primary! Vote either in person at our beautiful new Oodi Library in Helsinki or remotely (remote ballads will be available Feb. 18th online). If you are 18 years of age by Nov. 3, 2020, an American citizen, and will not participate in your state's presidential primary, cast your ballot and let your voice make a difference!
In person voting will be at:
Oodi Helsinki Central Library, Learning Room 2, Töölönlahdenkatu 4, Helsinki 00100
Tuesday, March 3, 2020 from 16:00-20:00 and

DA Finland enjoyed a great evening together engaging with presidential candidate, Secretary Julian Castro, as part of the Democrats Abroad video call series with presidential hopefuls. Guests then marveled at the touching documentary of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life, entitled RBG, and enjoyed a lively discussion and wine until late in the night.

Members of Democrats Abroad Finland enjoyed a fabulous night of jazz and lively discussion on September 20th! We gathered at Papa Albert to cheer on American singer Johanna Johnson as she sang over two hours of jazz classics. Thanks to all who turned out for this fun social evening!
DA Finland was happy to walk in the Helsinki Pride Parade on 29 June. This was our second year participating and we were proud to once again show our support for LGBTQ+ rights in Finland and around the world.
On U.S. Memorial Day, a small group of DA Finland members gathered at Hietaniemi Cemetary in Helsinki to pay tribute to all who have fallen in war or conflict.
