Just ahead of Greece’s May 21 General Elections, Thessaloniki Democrats Abroad debated the virtues and the foibles of the Greek electoral system under the expert guidance of Lambrini Nassis, DA member and lawyer who regularly serves as a court-appointed polling official.

Thessaloniki Democrats cast their US ballots in California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington D.C., Maryland and elsewhere. The discussion gave an opportunity to compare and contrast systems.
