About Us

2013_reed_awardiVote Israel is a diverse group of Olim, including recent-arrivals as well as vatikim from all over the country who are deeply concerned about the safety, security and future of Israel.

Most importantly, we want to see elected officials who will support and stand by Israel in absolute commitment to its safety, security and right to defend itself.

Since we believe that ‘there is no such thing as friends in politics, only interests,’ we started thinking about how to be proactive about this. Getting Americans in Israel to vote is a great way to give them a voice, and get the attention of America’s elected officials.

iVote Israel is a Project of Americans for Jerusalem, a registered 501(c)4. We do not support any specific candidate or candidate’s committee.

What if I never lived in America?

Why should someone in Israel get involved in American politics?

America’s elected officials have a major influence on the country’s policies toward the State of Israel. These policies include financial aid, military support and political backing. So Americans in Israel need to back United States candidates who pay attention to the concerns and well-being of the State of Israel. Register now.

Who can vote?

All U.S. citizens born or naturalized in the U.S. living in Israel are eligible to vote in all U.S. federal elections – including Senate, House of Representatives and Presidential elections – by absentee ballot.

Do overseas votes really count?

The 2000 Bush-Gore Presidential elections came down to 537 absentee ballots cast in Florida. Sixty-four of those came from Israel. Yet thousands of Floridian-Israelis could have voted and changed the results.
