Porto Ballot Assistance Event - March 3

Join Democrats Abroad and vote in the Global Presidential Primary this year at our ballot assistance events held on March 3, 5 pm on and March 7, 4 pm on, at Bar of Soap (Porto’s only laundry bar!), Rua de Santa Catarina 1095. We’ll be there all evening both days, so stop by anytime!
Ballot assistance events are not official polling stations, but are opportunities to pick up your remote ballot and get help sending it in.

Step 1: Register to vote from abroad at:

Step 2: If not already a member of DA.
Register online at

Step 3:
Stop in to vote and chat with other Democrats Abroad members. We’ll walk you through the process - it’s EASY!  If you’re so inclined, stay and try one of Bar of Soap’s classic cocktails or mocktails, and we’ll even have a special red, white and blue sweet treat for everyone who stops by!


Yes. Democrats Abroad holds its own primary election. We send our own delegates to the Democratic Convention. And we have our say in choosing the Democratic nominee for US President. Voting in the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary instead of your home state is easy for you — and good for all of us!


No need to request a ballot and post it home again. Simply drop in and we'll make sure your vote gets included in the Democrats Abroad Global Primary! You’ll still need to get an absentee ballot for the general election in November. But, for now, join US voters around the world and get voting right here where you live.


Concerned about issues like taxation, FATCA, or Social Security? Voting in the Global Primary shows Congress that we’re out here, in our millions, all around the globe. It gives Democrats Abroad the clout to lobby for us all and make a difference.

NOTE: This is a primary for the Democratic Presidential Nominee only. To vote in local down ballot primary races, you can request a ballot from your state at VoteFromAbroad.org. If you do, leave the choice of presidential nominee blank. Don’t vote twice! After voting in the Global Presidential Primary, you can then vote in other state and local races.
