Republicans in Israel Gearing Up for US Elections

Ad Feedback

Republicans Abroad Israel launched a new website to welcome the 2012 U.S. election cycle, the group said in a statement released on Thursday.

The website includes voter registration information and other relevant information.

"As we anticipate a spirited campaign cycle at the presidential, congressional, and local levels, the RAI website will be well positioned to remain the most reliable source of information on the various campaigns as well as the process of how tens of thousands of Americans citizens living in Israel from key swing states can exercise their right to vote," Kory Bardash, the co-chairman of RAI, said.

There are some 300,000 U.S. citizens living in Israel, which makes it one of the largest non-resident U.S. populations, the group says. In the past they have said that the voting population is large enough here to actually have an impact on presidential elections in those key swing states.

While in the U.S. a majority of Jewish voters choose democrats, in Israel a majority of voting Americans vote Republican.

Republicans Abroad in Israel is part of the group Republicans Abroad.

According to the Republicans Abroad website, more than six million Americans live overseas "a number larger than the populations of 24 states in the Union."

RA works to protect the interests of Americans living abroad and to mobilize those Americans to support Republicans in US elections, its website says.
