Election Day: Tuesday, November 6

By Marcia Vandercook

As we look forward to Food-a-Rama, we think of corned beef and chicken soup, but let’s not forget that November is the time to VOTE!

Temple Beth El is joining with other national and local Jewish organizations to make sure we all exercise our right to vote. This is a completely nonpartisan effort, to ensure that all Jewish voices are present in the public square, regardless of party or politics. Our goal is ambitious but not impossible – 100% congregational participation in this year’s midterm elections.

You may have already seen our volunteers providing voter information and voter registration after Yom Kippur morning services and at other Temple events. You might also have filled out a card pledging to vote.

If you are not yet registered to vote, it is not too late; you can register on election day. Please see https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/VoterDeadlines for details.

If you will be out of town or busy on Election Day, you can take advantage of Wisconsin’s option for early/absentee voting. You can request an absentee ballot for any reason, or you can vote in person at any municipal clerk’s office. For more information, see https://elections.wi.gov/voters/absentee.

Whatever the case, make sure you get out to vote, and bring a friend or relative with you to the polls. Then stop by Food-a-Rama and enjoy the corned beef!
