For the first time, Democrats living abroad had the opportunity to vote in person in a presidential primary. The Democratic Party has given the group Democrats Abroad 11 delegates to the national convention, and the group opened polling stations in more than 30 countries. The Republican Party does not elect convention delegates from abroad, so Republicans living outside the U.S. had to vote by absentee ballot in state primaries. Here, in Ajijic, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Democratic voters receive instructions at a polling station.
