Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Vice President Joe Biden among voters living outside the U.S., Democrats Abroad announced Monday.

The group, an official arm of the Democratic Party, said Sanders received 57.9% of the vote to Biden’s 22.7%. Sanders will be awarded nine delegates and Biden four.

The article goes on to state the following:

Voting in the Democrats Abroad primary began on March 3, aka Super Tuesday, and continued through March 10. Democrats Abroad said participation was up 15% 2016 (when Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton 68.8%-30.9%), with nearly 40,000 votes cast.

“Americans abroad have spoken, and they’ve done so in higher numbers than ever, despite the challenges of Covid-19,” said Democrats Abroad chairwoman Julia Bryan . “I’d like to thank the voters in 180 countries who cast their ballot in our largest-ever Global Presidential Primary.”

Sanders trails Biden by about 300 pledged delegates, even after the win. Biden still needs 786 to reach the 1,991 needed to clinch the presidential nomination.
