Adding domain controller to remote site - having users prefer this domain controller?

We have added a domain controller, that is a global catalog to a remote site that is connected (under same domain). It is on a different subnet. We have other domain controllers that run Windows Server 2008 R2. We have a WAN link between the sites.

How do we make users at that remote site prefer the new domain controller that is now local to them? Is this done through AD Sites & Services? The new domain controller is running windows server 2012 r2.

Thanks

Yes. AD Sites and Services AND be sure to adjust site costs accordingly.  Here is an article on what the GC does.
