Democrats Abroad announces that Rep Tulsi Gabbard has qualified for the Global Presidential Primary
On Tuesday, December 31st, Tulsi Gabbard became the latest presidential candidate to finalize filing to participate in the Democrats Abroad 2020 Global Presidential Primary.
The primary will run from March 3rd to March 10th, 2020. Americans abroad will have the opportunity to vote at more than 100 voting centers around the world, as well as via postal mail, fax and email.
“The Global Presidential Primary and Delegate Selection Process ensures Americans abroad have the opportunity to easily participate in the Democratic primary process while also bringing our unique issues to the attention of Democratic presidential candidates,” explained Julia Bryan, Democrats Abroad Global Chair.
Democrats Abroad represents the millions of Democratic voters living abroad and voting in all 50 states. All Americans living outside the United States may participate in the Global Presidential primary and run for a convention delegate position, provided they are eligible to vote and turn 18 on or before November 3, 2020, and that they are Democrats Abroad members.
Democrats Abroad will send 13 pledged delegates and 8 automatic delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin next July. The results of the Global Presidential Primary will determine which candidates the delegates represent at the Convention.
Democrats Abroad looks forward to hosting the first Super Tuesday Democratic primary elections, with first ballots cast in New Zealand more than 24 hours before voting centers open on the U.S. East Coast.
