Democrats Abroad Thailand had 918 American voters participate in the Global Presidential Primary from all around Thailand. The results were 681 voters for Senator Bernie Sanders, 235 for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and 2 uncommitted.
Phil Robertson, the chairman of Democrats Abroad Thailand said the following about the results:
"Over 74% of Americans voting in Thailand decided to "Feel the Bern" and support Senator Sanders, and their voice was clearly in line with the majority of Americans living overseas who gave the Sanders campaign a major victory in the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary.
I'm immensely proud that Thailand had the second highest voter turnout among American voters anywhere in Asia, which just goes to show how eager and committed Americans here are to support their candidates and ensure that overseas Americans voices are heard in this important Presidential campaign.
But I'm confident in saying that no matter who is the eventual Democratic nominee for President, all US Democrats living in Thailand will unite to support that person because it's so very clear that both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are completely unprepared and unsuited to lead our great country. Democrats Abroad will be working hard to register Americans living in Thailand to vote in the general election in November, and celebrating our democracy with many events such as debate watch parties between the Democrats and Republicans.
It's going to be an exciting year for US politics, and those Americans who join Democrats Abroad Thailand will be in the front row seats."
