    Coronavirus Update from Democrats Abroad Sweden

    Because of the ongoing outbreak of Covid-19 in Sweden, Democrats Abroad Sweden is canceling all events and gatherings through March 31. 

    Right now, social distancing measures are some of the most effective ways for us all to help slow the spread of Covid-19 in Sweden so that the healthcare system does not get overwhelmed. That is why Democrats Abroad Sweden has decided to cancel all our events and gatherings for the time being. We will monitor the situation on an ongoing basis and will keep members informed regarding future events after March 31.

    Since we will not be holding voter registration events in the near future, please consider completing your ballot request for the November election from home right now. Go to www.votefromabroad.org to get started.

    Frequently Asked Questions you may have about the GPP:

    "Am I eligible?"

    If you’re a Democrats Abroad member and you haven’t voted (or plan to vote) in any other 2020 state presidential primary/caucus, you’re eligible to vote in the Global Presidential Primary.

    "What if I can’t join a voting event in person?"
    If you can’t join us at our events in Sweden, you can vote remotely. Look for your primary ballot in your inbox on February 18, or download it from democratsabroad.org starting on Feb 18, as well.

    "Do votes in the GPP count? Why should I participate in the GPP instead of voting in my state’s presidential primary?"

    Yes your vote counts! In fact, you could even say that votes in the GPP count even more. Tens of thousands of people will participate in the global primary, but millions will vote in your home state. That means that your vote in the Global Presidential Primary is more powerful than voting in the California primary. In fact, it’s 4 times more powerful!

    "I vote in California. Can I vote in the Global Presidential Primary and the California primary?"

    You can only vote in a presidential primary once. If you vote in the global primary and want to vote in California for the down-ballot primary races (like for your congressperson), you can! Just skip the presidential section on your California ballot.

    "Where can I ask further questions?"
    Please email gotv@democratsabroad.org for voting-related questions, and Info-Sweden@democratsabroad.org for other questions.

    P.S. Help us spread the word! Consider liking and sharing our social media posts about the GPP!

    Yours,

    Beth Landry

    Vice Chair, Democrats Abroad Sweden
