We Are Part Of The 2012 Democrats Abroad Delegation to the DNC Convention in Charlotte

At the recent Global Convention Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Democrats Abroad announced that President Barack Obama had won the organization?s Global Primary. The Democrats Abroad Global Primary was conducted May 1-6, 2012 at more than 90 voting centers in 33 countries.

“There was an overwhelming show of support for President Obama and his many accomplishments, including putting Americans back to work, reforming Wall Street and protecting consumers, making college more affordable, ending the War in Iraq, repealing ?Don?t Ask, Don?t Tell,? and delivering affordable health care,? said Kenneth E. Sherman, International Chair of Democrats Abroad in Canada. ?As Americans living abroad, we?ve also seen first-hand the gains President Obama has made repairing the U.S. image overseas.?

The election results also determined the 17 delegates who will attend the Democratic National Convention along with 8 DNC members September 3-7, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Convention delegation was elected in a combination of both the May 1-6 voting center elections and elections at the May 18-20 Democrats Abroad Global Convention which were held in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Democrats Abroad especially thanks the 160 members who stood for election as delegates in the multiple elections.
