Democratic Presidential Primary Voting in Switzerland

The excitement of the Democratic presidential nominating process will be coming to Switzerland during the first week of May. This is the time when American Democrats can show their support by voting to once again have Barack Obama as the Democratic Nominee for President in 2012.

The Democratic Party is unique among American political parties in considering Democrats Abroad as ''the 51st state'' and offering our members living outside of the U.S. the chance to cast their vote for
Barack Obama. In Switzerland, Democrats Abroad members will vote in the primary on May 3rd from 6:00-9:00 PM, at The Bristol Hotel, 10 rue du Mont-Blanc, 1201 Geneva.

At this same event, Democrats Abroad will also be electing our delegates to go to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, in September. The delegates will represent us in nominating Barack Obama. We have several Democrats Abroad Switzerland members who are candidates running to be delegates. Their names along with the full list of candidates will be announced soon.

As background, President Obama is not the official nominee of the party until the state delegates, including Democrats Abroad, have voted at the Convention in Charlotte.

If you can't attend the official primary event on May 3rd in Geneva, then you can vote in the presidential primary with an absentee ballot by mail, fax or email. Absentee ballot voting details will be announced in mid-April.

Americans, who are not yet registered as a Democrat Abroad, can do so at the May 3rd Democrats Abroad Primary event in Geneva and vote that same day. It's quick and easy at: www.democratsabroad.org/join.

We very much hope that you will participate in the Democrats Abroad Primary, and we would especially love to see you come in person to cast your ballot. For overseas voters, this is the only chance we will have this year to actually walk into a voting place and cast an in-person ballot. Read more: https:// www.democratsabroad.org/node/14688
