WHY YOUR VOTE MATTERS

As recent electoral cycles have demonstrated, mobilizing a small yet homogeneous and passionate micro-group can be a decisive factor in tipping swing States to win key congressional races and ultimately the Presidency.

Here are some examples of recent elections decided by a margin of victory of less than 0.1%.

Electoral Cycle State Election Margin of Votes Between Winner & Loser (Absolute)
2012 Iowa Republican Caucuses 34
2008 Alaska House of Representatives 1
2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate 312
2005 Virginia Attorney General 323
2004 Montana House of Representatives 2
2004 Washington Gubernatorial 133
2000 New Mexico U.S. Presidential 366
2000 Florida U.S. Presidential 537

An estimated 200,000 to 500,000 US citizens currently reside in Israel. Of these, a substantial number are eligible to vote in key swing states, such as Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. By mobilizing this never-before targeted micro-group we can be a decisive factor in the 2012 elections, ensuring a Congress and White House who will stand by Israel.

Beyond the direct electoral significance, mobilizing and energizing American voters in Israel will play a key role in influencing the votes of friends, family, and supporters of Israel back in the US; voters whose vote would otherwise be driven by domestic concerns rather than concern for Israel.
