The number of Americans who registered to vote in this year’s world Zionist elections is down by nearly one-third. Although the final numbers are not yet tallied, the American Zionist Movement estimates 110,000-115,000 people registered for the March elections, as opposed to nearly 150,000 in 1997. The AZM primarily blamed Sept. 11 for the decreased participation.
