Operation Bubbe!!! Get out the vote!!!

Operation Bubbe is an effort to recruit Jews unhappy with the leadership in Washington who live in northeastern “safe states” to travel to Florida for the five day weekend before Election Day as Get Out The Vote (GOTV) volunteers to make sure Jewish retirees get to the polls. Once in Florida, volunteers will participate in a variety of activities, including up to four days of GOTV work in the Jewish community, an Operation Bubbe volunteer party/pep rally, and a victory celebration after the polls close on election day. All volunteers will be trained before deployment. Operation Bubbe will not provide transportation to Florida, but will provide any other reasonable assistance necessary to enable all volunteers to participate fully, including transportation and lodging within the three targeted counties in southeastern Florida: Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach. The counties encompass the Jewish communities of North Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and West Palm Beach. We will focus on helping Jewish seniors in selected condo associations and retirement communities.
