Voting in the Democrats Abroad primary began on March 3, aka Super Tuesday, and continued through March 10. Democrats Abroad said participation was up 15% 2016 (when Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton 68.8%-30.9%), with nearly 40,000 votes cast.
“Americans abroad have spoken, and they’ve done so in higher numbers than ever, despite the challenges of Covid-19,” said Democrats Abroad chairwoman Julia Bryan . “I’d like to thank the voters in 180 countries who cast their ballot in our largest-ever Global Presidential Primary.”
Sanders trails Biden by about 300 pledged delegates, even after the win. Biden still needs 786 to reach the 1,991 needed to clinch the presidential nomination.
