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.
Don’t miss your chance to vote in-person in Sweden this presidential year!
The Global Presidential Primary (GPP) is a week-long voting period -- kicking off on March 3, Super Tuesday! -- for Democrats Abroad members to participate in our official party-run presidential primary. We’re holding more than 240 events in 45 countries around the world. We hope you’ll be joining us!
To vote using a remote ballot via email or post, follow the instructions here: https://www.democratsabroad.org/primary. Please also scroll to the bottom of this page for information about our DA Sweden Ballot Assistance Events, as well as some of our Frequently Asked Questions about voting in the GPP.

We will also have 3 Ballot Assistance Events here in Sweden. Ballot Assistance Events are available for voters to receive help registering to vote, signing up to join Democrats Abroad, as well as ensuring their remotely-voted ballots have all the required information. There won't be a Ballot Box, but our volunteers will be ready to help you navigate the 2020 Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary in almost any other way!

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