Time Left to Vote
Tuesday, November 8, is Election Day
Each one of us who embraces the values that we share in the pluralistic and diverse New York Jewish community needs to put those values into action by voting in the midterm elections. There are contested elections at every level — for Governor, for Congress, and for the New York State Assembly — and our community must show up and vote.
ALL of the issues we care about most — combating antisemitism and other forms of bigotry and hate, reproductive choice, climate change, an effective response to the pandemic, addressing economic and educational inequality, dismantling structural racism, LGBTQ+ rights, and support for Israel as a Jewish and democratic state — are on the ballot for this election. Moreover, as we saw with January 6 and efforts that have been undertaken by election deniers to undermine our democratic process, democracy itself is on the ballot as well.
Because these elections are so important, NYJA wanted to make sure that you have at your fingertips all of the resources you need to vote in the midterms — in person early or on Election Day —Tuesday, November 8 — or absentee. We also are including links to information about the statewide ballot proposition and the three New York City ballot initiatives. NYJA endorses all four ballot initiatives.
The key to ensuring that you have the opportunity to vote and have your vote counted is MAKING A PLAN TO VOTE. And the key to ensuring that the pluralistic and diverse Jewish community in New York makes its voice heard is if we all vote, so TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE as well.
