Super Tuesday in Madrid 
6th-Feb-2008 03:38 pm
If you've got sharp eyes, you can glimpse me at the beginning and end of this short video. Last night, Democrats Abroad in Madrid organized a polling place and election party. I organized the polls, checked in voters, and finally counted ballots at 2 a.m. after the party ended. Obama took 70% of the live votes in Spain last night, and you can see how enthusiastic people were.

But the vote isn't over. Democrats Abroad members in 100 countries can vote by Internet, in-person at voting centers, or by mail. Because it is difficult and sometimes impossible to participate in primaries if you live overseas, Democrats Abroad organized its own Democratic primary. Final results will be available later this month when all the paper trails and tallies are checked.

The results will determine the makeup of the Democrats Abroad delegation to the Democratic National Convention, where it's treated like a 51st state.

So are you in the back with your head down taking prisoners, umm, pollers?

I'm in the back with my head down counting ballots as part of that paper trail thing. We had to have as many in the end as we had in the beginning, naturally, although some people wanted to take one as a souvenir.
