NGO stresses ‘nonpartisan’ plan to increase Israeli-Arab voter turnout

The Abraham Fund Initiatives NGO launched what it called a “nonpartisan” campaign to increase turnout in the Israeli-Arab sector for the coming elections, after a report surfaced about possible US funding for such efforts.

The campaign includes running conferences for Arab students in colleges; media outreach; and work on a new poll that will identify the messages that would encourage the most turnout.

Earlier this month, the Washington Free Beacon reported that a group of US-funded progressive groups were planning a major effort to increase voter turnout among certain communities in Israel that are likely to vote against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.
