There are increasing reports that numerous American citizens living in Israel have not yet received their absentee ballots for next week’s presidential election.
For those readers who are among this group, and did not receive a ballot from your local Board of Elections, all is not yet lost. One can download and print out a federal write-in absentee ballot that is valid in every state in the U.S., and return it anyway.
The ‘iVote Israel’ organization, a project of the nonprofit organization “Americans for Jerusalem,” has placed drop boxes in 11 towns and cities around Israel, for filled-out ballots that will then be returned, postage-free, to the United States.
Most are located in the center of the country, but one is also located in Be’er Sheva, in southern Israel, and one is also located in Efrat, a town in Judea, close to Jerusalem.
