Voting For Bernie Sanders In Wellington

Voting papers and a ballot box will be provided for American democrats travelling abroad who are wishing to vote for Bernie Sanders. It will be in Wellington at the Newtown Fair on Sunday, 6th of March 2016.

Many American democrats living abroad have had their eyes opened to the benefits of accessible, free healthcare, affordable education, and effective regulation of banking. Many also wish for a cessation in the disastrous economic, environmental and diplomatic policies that America has engaged in during the 21st Century. Many feel that the time has come for new kind of leader. People want someone who cannot be bought; someone who shows decisive action and sound judgement based on a comprehensive understanding of many complicated and interrelated issues.

That Leader is Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sadly many of these dissenting Americans think they have missed out on their opportunity to make their voice heard, but the polls are still open. In order to remedy this situation, we have arranged voting papers and a ballot box to be made available at the Newtown Fair.

This voting booth will be staffed by several American ex-pats over the day. We encourage all Americans in Wellington to come down and vote, and we will help facilitate this process.

Sincerely,

The People for Bernie.

ENDS
