American citizens have the right to vote in U.S. federal elections, no matter where you live in the world or how long you’ve lived there - and Democrats Abroad is here to help!
Click here to request your overseas absentee ballot. This option is for voters who wish to vote with their state primary, and for all voters who will vote in the 2020 general elections.
I voted in the Democrats Abroad Global Primary, do I need to register again?
YES! Democrats Abroad runs its own primary election which decides how Democrats Abroad’s delegates will vote at the Democratic National Convention. It’s just like the presidential primary in your voting state, but in most cases your vote is actually more powerful in our primary. Tens of thousands will vote in the global primary, compared to millions in most US state primaries.
Voting in the global primary did not register you to vote in the general elections, however. Everyone should request their overseas absentee ballot from your US voting state this year. Doing so will ensure that you receive all overseas absentee ballots relevant to you this year — including the general election in the fall, as well as any special elections and local and state primaries.
Just remember, if you voted in the global primary, don't vote for president in your state's primary - but do vote down-ballot for other elections.
