Civic Engagement@Temple Shalom

The Civic Engagement Committee of Temple Shalom strives to educate our membership about voting procedures, deadlines and upcoming elections. Our goal is that 100% of our members exercise their right to vote! We support these goals by supplying non-partisan information and hosting activities to encourage everyone to vote. This year, we are monitoring the issues of voting in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and are here to help our members learn about early voting, and ways to vote safely, or by mail, if eligible.
