Super Tuesday may be behind us, but you can still make your voice heard in the Democratic presidential primary even if you missed it because you're abroad (like I am currently).
Democrats Abroad is an official branch of the Democratic party so it can let citizens vote from abroad either in-person or over the Internet. Unfortunately, Republicans Abroad is unofficial so it can't do this.
It looks like the deadline to register to vote online has passed, but you can still vote in-person at Voting Centers (list in PDF) in 34 countries around the world from February 5 to 12. Just show up with your passport and proof of residency to participate in the 2008 Global Presidential Primary. For instance, if you're in Nice, France, you can cast your vote at Hotel West-End on February 8.
However, if you vote in the global primary, you can't cast an additional vote in your home state's primary.
Your vote will decide how the 22 delegates (with 11 votes total) of the global primary vote this August at the Democratic Convention.
