EE Votes is a nonpartisan civic engagement initiative with a goal of making Emanu El a 100% voting congregation in all elections.
We live in a democracy, and our democracy is strongest when everyone participates. As Americans and as Jews, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to make our voices heard. Throughout Jewish history, our rabbis and sages have framed voting as more than just a civic duty. Voting is a mitzvah, a sacred obligation.
Emanu El is virtually 100% registered to vote. But registering to vote is only half of the commitment, half of the opportunity, and half of the mitzvah. We must cast our ballots for our voices to be heard. So, while the goal of EE Votes is 100% voter turnout for our congregation, our mission is to make it as easy as possible to reach that goal.
Please take a moment to pledge to vote and tell us your voting plan. We’ll send you a reminder with your voting plan.

Harris County voters can vote at any Harris County polling place during both early voting and on Election Day. If you are going to vote in person, we strongly encourage you to vote early, when lines are typically much shorter. The lines tend to be longer on the first and last days of early voting, but they are still shorter than election day. Harris county voters can get live information about line times at harrisvotes.com.
