Dear PZ Community,

We want to make you aware that the upcoming Pennsylvania primary election is on April 23, coinciding with the first day of Pesach.

To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to vote, we strongly encourage you to apply for a mail-in ballot, Mail-in and Absentee Ballot (

Also, remember that Pennsylvania is a closed primary state, so it's crucial to verify your party affiliation if you plan to participate in the primary election.

To verify your current registration status including your current address, legal name and party affiliation please go to PA Voter Services - Voter Registration Status. You can easily change your party affiliation here, and change it again after the primary election if you so wish.

Thank you for your commitment to civic participation and exercizing your right as a US citizen to vote. Feel free to share this information widely within our community.

Best Regards,

Rabbi Daniel Yolkut
