This same op-ed gets written every 3 months and it didn’t work last time. This is where you need ‘community organizing’. A competent community council can solve this tomorrow. CHJCC organizes (see that word) a voter registration table every Sunday in a different Jewish populated building. Get word out on Whatsapp where the table will be and solicit volunteers to spend an hour or two helping people fill out the forms.
