Today, June 25th, is Primary Election Day across New York State. Voters throughout the state will be selecting the party nominees for many offices, including Districts Attorney in Queens and Rockland County, as well as some important judicial and legislative elections. Agudath Israel urges all in our community to exercise this most important right and vote.
Voter turnout in primaries is generally low. That makes each vote count even more than it ordinarily does. There are significant issues facing our community and it is vital that our voices be heard. Decisions at the highest level of government are often based upon which communities come out to vote.
So please take the time to make an investment in our communities by voting this Tuesday! With challenges to Yahadus facing the Orthodox Jewish community in New York State, the future of our communities, our yeshivas, and the freedom to practice our way of life may be at stake.
