Join Our 100% Voting Effort and Make Your Voice Heard

The primaries are coming! The primaries are coming!

Voting is a Jewish act, as taught by Rabbi Yitzhak in the Talmud: “A ruler is not to be appointed unless the community is first consulted” (Babylonian Talmud Berachot 55a). Temple Beth El strives to be a 100% Voting Congregation, honoring this tradition by advocating for every voice to be heard.

Your Pre-Primary Day Checklist

Confirm your registration. Recent redistricting means some of your precincts may have changed. Or you can search for your district by address.

  1. Have you moved recently? Changed your name? You may need to update your information with the Board of Elections before you vote.

  2. Is there anyone in your life who might need a little extra assistance to vote? Please feel free to share this message with them and help others fulfill their civic duty!

  3. North Carolina Residents: Did you know anyone who will be 18 by November 5, 2024, can vote in the primary, even if they are not 18? Click here to register. Most voters can also register at their early voting location.

  4. Confirm that you have an acceptable form of ID, which must be presented to vote.North Carolina Residents | South Carolina Residents
