Can’t cast a vote? Here’s a great way to support your party

A virtual voting interface that walks you through the Israeli election experience

Even if you can’t cast a real vote in the upcoming Israeli elections, here is a great way to support your party. Anyone can cast an online vote through Hasbara Fellowships’ “I Vote Israel” mock elections.

“I Vote Israel” is an interactive web campaign where visitors learn about the Israeli political parties directly from Israeli students via short YouTube videos, and then cast a ‘vote’ for the party with which they identify on a Facebook webpage.

Israel advocates at US universities are using the Israeli elections as an opportunity to educate their peers about Israeli democracy via the “I Vote Israel”campaign. Results of the mock election will be calculated per university, as well as overall.

The campaign also includes posters and pamphlets for use at mock voting stations on campus, as well as an online message board where participants can post their perceptions of Israel.

The campaign is designed to educate and engage non-Jewish and Jewish students, but non-students can participate in the voting and message board as well.

Visit the “I Vote Israel” interactive voting website.

Watch the videos by young Israelis supporting various parties.
