How To Sign Candidate Petitions for the Global Presidential Primary

The Global Presidential Primary will be held from March 3-10, 2020. This primary allows voters living abroad to cast a primary vote for a candidate of their choice. For any candidate to get on the Global Presidential Primary ballot, they need 300 signatures from Democrats Abroad members. So far, only Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren have qualified. You are allowed to sign the petition for as many or as few candidates as you would like and are not required to cast a vote in the primary for any candidate you signed a petition for.

To sign the petition, you must be willing to share your name and email with the campaign. Signing a petition only takes a few minutes. The best way to ensure a democratic vote is to have all qualified candidates on the ballot, so please follow these steps and sign the candidate petitions!
