Millions of voters across the United States will participate today in selecting the Republican and Democratic candidates for the November presidential election. Super Tuesday, featuring primaries or party caucuses in 16 states, is expected to confirm the dominant positions of Republican ex-president Donald Trump and his Democratic successor in the White House, Joe Biden.

American voters living abroad can also cast this Super Tuesday’s first ballots, as voting centers open worldwide on March 5 for Democrats living abroad. 

Democrats Abroad Czech Republic will hold two voting center events at The Globe Bookstore and Cafe in Prague this week: Tuesday, March 5, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 10, from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“We’re excited to be running an in-person election once again at The Globe Bookstore,” said Brent Pharis, Chair of Democrats Abroad Czech Republic. “Americans abroad have been casting their ballots here for years, and it’s a tradition we all cherish.” 

Starting on Super Tuesday, March 5, and running until March 12, Democrats Abroad will run over 100 voting centers in 45 countries worldwide. Democrats Abroad also provides remote voting, which allows Americans abroad who can’t reach voting centers to participate, regardless of where they are located. 

The‌ ‌results‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌Global‌ ‌Presidential‌ ‌Primary‌ will ‌determine‌ ‌the‌ ‌number‌ ‌of‌ ‌delegates‌ ‌ ‌each‌ ‌presidential‌ ‌candidate‌ ‌will‌ ‌receive‌ ‌from‌ ‌Democrats‌ ‌Abroad‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌Democratic‌ ‌National‌ ‌Convention‌ ‌this‌ August, helping‌ ‌to determine‌ ‌the‌ ‌Democratic‌ ‌presidential‌ ‌nominee‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌2024 ‌elections.‌ ‌Democrats‌ ‌Abroad‌ ‌sends‌ ‌21‌ ‌delegates‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌convention,‌ ‌13‌ ‌of‌ ‌which‌ ‌are‌ ‌pledged‌ ‌delegates.‌

Interested voters should head to for more information on registering and downloading their ballot. 

All‌ ‌Americans‌ ‌outside‌ ‌the‌ ‌U.S. may‌ ‌participate‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌primary‌, provided‌ ‌they‌ ‌are‌ ‌18‌ ‌or‌ ‌older‌ ‌by‌ ‌Nov. ‌5,‌ ‌2024,‌ ‌are‌ ‌Democrats‌ ‌Abroad‌ ‌members,‌ ‌and‌ ‌have‌ ‌not‌ ‌voted‌ ‌in‌ ‌another‌ ‌presidential‌ ‌primary‌ ‌or‌ ‌caucus‌ ‌in‌ ‌this‌ ‌election‌ ‌cycle.‌ ‌Same-day‌ ‌registration‌ ‌is‌ ‌available‌ ‌for‌ ‌Americans‌ ‌who‌ ‌have‌ ‌not‌ ‌yet‌ ‌joined‌ ‌Democrats‌ ‌Abroad.‌ 

According to the New York Times, this year’s Super Tuesday is “unusually important.” Democrats Abroad Vice Chair Julia Bryan told “Voting in the Global Primary literally puts Americans abroad on the map for the U.S., showing candidates that we care and show up.” She adds: “This is important as we push for legislation that protects our voting rights, social security, and other financial issues.”
