With the US election race taking off in earnest this month, Democrats Abroad, an official organisation operated under the auspices of Democratic National Committee in Washington, is holding its Global Presidential Primary tomorrow on ‘Super Tuesday’.

In Denmark, in-person voting for Democratic presidential candidates will take place from noon to 20:00 at Holberg No 19, a café located at Holbergsgade 19D in the city centre near Nyhavn.

“With the internet, it’s become a lot easier for American citizens living abroad to vote in the US elections,” David S Miller, the spokesperson for Democrats Abroad Denmark, told the Copenhagen Post.

“Websites such as FVAP.gov and VoteFromAbroad.org allow US citizens to fill in their information online and print out a ballot request form that they sign and in many cases can email back as a PDF file to the local election board.”

Bring your passport
Any American citizen who is 18 years old or older by 8 November 2016 can vote in the US election, and at the venue tomorrow, Democrats Abroad Denmark can help voters register to vote in the upcoming state primaries as well as November’s election.

Voter registration is non-partisan, and Miller recommends that you bring your US passport along for identification.

Democrats Abroad is holding in-person voting in 104 cities in 39 countries, including Copenhagen. On Super Tuesday, voting will be taking place in 14 states plus the territory of American Somoa, as well as around the world via Democrats Abroad.

The US Republican Party does not have a similar organisation to Democrats Abroad.
