Max und Moritz Restaurant was the scene of the Voting Center of the Berlin chapter of Democrats Abroad. Super Tuesday, the 5th of February was the first of two nights. More that 250 Americans came to visit and gather until the wee hours of the morning to watch the results of the Caucuses and Primaries. 192 votes were cast. On the second night, Saturday, the 9th of February we had a turnout of 125 people with 96 Americans putting the name of their favorite candidate into the specially designed ballot box. Nancy Green announced the results of the Voting Center that night.

The Donkey on the Brandenburg Gate was the theme of our voting box. It was designed by Nancy Green and Karen Axelrad. By pulling on a string under the Donkey each voter could make the donkey kick. "Kicking Ass" was the most photographed object at the Voting Center and even made the LA Times. We hope that Nancy Green, the manager of our Voting Center wins the first prize from John McQueen of the Wednesday Wire for having the
best voting box of the Voting Centers of Democrats Äbroad Germany.
Great pictures of the the Voting Center were taken by Karen Axelrad. You can see them on:
