Civic Engagement

Judea Reform Congregation maintains a strong commitment to civic engagement and voting, as a civic and Jewish value of our congregation. We recall the prophet Jeremiah who wrote during the exile to Babylonia that we are to engage deeply in the communities where we find ourselves. 

Vote

To research the candidates on your ballot, use this nonpartisan League of Women Voters resource.

If you plan to vote by absentee ballot, complete your ballot and mail it in, or bring it to your County Board of Election as soon as possible. You will also be able to turn in your absentee ballot at any Early Voting site, but you may have to wait on line. If you have not received your absentee ballot by mid October, we recommend Early Voting to ensure your vote will count by November 3.

Do you need to register to vote, get an absentee ballot, find your polling place, learn what is on the ballot, and get early voting information? You Can Vote, can help you with their Voter Guide.
