First Super Tuesday results:
Sanders 21 - Clinton 6
Americans in New Zealand first to vote in what could be the turning point of the U.S. Primary elections
New Zealand is the first of 39 countries where Democrats Abroad will host in-person voting between March 1-8; voting sites will be open in 22 countries on Super Tuesday alone, and in 104 cities throughout the week.
Democrats Abroad hosted a Global Town Hall on Sunday February 21 at which the two presidential campaigns spoke directly to our members. More than 2000 people in 65 countries signed up to host the event either as individuals or for house parties, making it the single biggest event ever in DA's history. Joining us from the Hillary Clinton campaign was Madeleine Albright, and from the Bernie Sanders campaign we are grateful that Senator Sanders himself was able to join us. In case you missed it, you can find both parts of the Global Town Hall on our Democrats Abroad channel on Vimeo. Or you can just click below! Our thanks to Secretary Albright and Senator Sanders for joining us.
Extraordinary Global Event Not To Be Missed!
THE CAMPAIGNS TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO DEMOCRATS ABROAD!
Democrats around the world will participate in a Global Town Hall this Sunday, February 21, at Noon eastern time (that's 6pm in Europe). The Clinton and Sanders campaigns will be speaking directly to us via a webex video connection, and responding to our questions. This will be a historic event--the first time ever that DA has been addressed directly by presidential campaigns during a primary--and you will not want to miss it. Joining us to answer our questions will be Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton's top Foreign Policy Advisor, and Senator Bernie Sanders, candidate.
YOU CAN JOIN THE TOWN HALL IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME!
Joining us from the Clinton campaign is Jake Sullivan, Hillary Clinton's top Foreign Policy Advisor. Mr. Sullivan served as Secretary Clinton’s Director of Policy Planning at the State Department. He also served as Vice President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor and was a principal architect of the Iranian nuclear talks. He could be the National Security Advisor in a future Clinton Administration.
The person joining us from the Sanders campaign needs no introduction: Senator Bernie Sanders himself! No, you didn't read that wrong - the Senator informed us on Thursday night that he would connect to the call. So this is truly a historic event for Democrats Abroad.

You have the opportunity to cast your vote for one of our outstanding candidates and, we think, to select the next President of the United States.
