Absetee Voting
in Berlin

The presidential election in the US was one of the major topics of 2020 – also in Germany. For the news campaign of German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, I illustrated an article about absentee voting in Berlin.
A few days before the US election it is still not yet certain if Democrats or Republicans will win the race, but the decision is not only made in the US: All around the world there are millions of voters abroad – about 120.000 in Germany.
The article is written by Elisabeth Binder and looks at Berlin, which is home to about 21.000 people who are entitled to vote in the US election 2020: Who are they, who are they voting for and why?
