Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary will award delegates to any candidate receiving 15% or more of the primary votes cast. Presidential candidates will be awarded delegates in proportion to their support in the Primary. 


Democrats Abroad will also hold caucuses to choose its delegates to the Democratic National Convention. These meetings will culminate in a Global Convention in Berlin, Germany on May 14-15, 2016. Democrats Abroad will have 17 votes at the Democratic Convention, held in Philadelphia on July 25-28.

Please Note 

You may vote for a Presidential candidate in EITHER the Global Presidential Primary, OR your home state’s primary (or caucus if you happen to be there). When you vote in DA’s Global Presidential Primary, you may not vote for a Presidential candidate in your voting state’s primary. BUT you may still vote in your home state’s primary for US House and Senate and other down ballot races as determined by your local election official.

Canada is one of more than 40 countries around the world that will be hosting in person voting on Super Tuesday, March 1, the same day as 13 other U.S. State parties will be holding their Presidential primaries.  

Again, Democrats who can’t attend on those days can vote by email, post or fax now until March 8. Details at http://www.democratsabroad.org/global_presidential_primary
