JERUSALEM, Israel - Vote from Israel, a nonpartisan organization helping Americans to vote by absentee ballot, says Israel has the third largest group of Americans living abroad, next to Canada and Britain.
Shimon Greenspan, director of the organization, believes votes coming from Israel could impact the U.S. presidential race, especially in swing states like Ohio and Florida.
According to Greenspan, results of an exit poll, commissioned by Vote from Israel, will be published next week - a week before the November 4 election - which could impact the American Jewish vote in the U.S.
In addition to those working or going to school in Israel, Americans who immigrated to Israel and hold dual citizenship, are also eligible to vote in the U.S. election.
An earlier poll by KEEVOON Research, Strategy and Communications, published in August, showed Israelis favoring McCain-Palin over Obama-Biden, by 38 to 31 percent.
On October 26 and 28, Vote from Israel will hold events in Jerusalem and Tele Aviv where people will be able to drop off their ballots or vote via a federal ballot provided by the organization.
