Can I participate in the GPP?

YES, if you

  • Haven’t voted, nor intend to vote, in any other state’s 2024 presidential primary**

Why should I participate in the GPP?

Lots of reasons!

First, participating in the GPP shows the US (and the world) how important our elections are to US Citizens living abroad - and how important WE are to those elections. Our strength is in numbers, and by making our voices heard loudly, we make the issues that matter to us known. Voting in the GPP is a forceful way to advocate for those issues. 

Second, a vote in the GPP has greater “weight” than it does in a voter’s “home” state party. While tens of 1,000s of people will participate in the global primary this year, millions will vote in a voter’s home state. 

Third, by casting a vote in the GPP, US citizens abroad will help give Democrats Abroad a stronger voice and greater weight with the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Representation in the DNC is based on proportionality. The more we vote, the more representation we have, and this improves our chances of achieving some of our most important policy goals.
