On Super Tuesday March 3, 2020 Democrats Abroad (DA) produced the Global Presidential Primary (GPP). The 2020 GPP spanned 180 countries with 39,984 ballots cast representing an exciting 15% increase from 2016. Official results show that Bernie Sanders received 57.9% of the vote while Joe Biden received 22.7%.

From Christina Skovsgaard, Voting Center Manager 2020 and Democrats Abroad Norway (DAN) Vice Chair; DAN had two voting centers one in Oslo the other in Stavanger. All of this was made possible by an amazing volunteer staff. All volunteers participated in a great deal of training before the actual event. DAN is grateful for and proud of each one of our 17 volunteers. Without them this would have not been the success that it was.
(above) Even though it was a rainy, cold day in Oslo we welcomed a continuous stream of voters (including 3 first time voters) along with people looking for advice on registering to vote.
In Stavanger (above left) our first vote! (above right) Directly off the plane from the US a jet lagged voter. (below) Voting Center Manager Gaye Rosland (right) with volunteer André Durham.
