Encouraging Diaspora Voting in North America

May, 05 2022

In anticipation of the 2022 Lebanese Parliamentary Elections, the American Task Force on Lebanon hosted a webinar on May 5th, 2022 in collaboration with the Middle East Institute (MEI), with the intention of encouraging registered voters in North America to vote. The purpose of the webinar was to encourage the diaspora to turn out to vote and to hear from the Lebanese government on what it has been doing to reassure them that their vote will be properly counted and protected.

In this webinar, Amb. Ed Gabriel, President of ATFL, moderated a conversation with the Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, H.E. Abdallah Bou Habib. This was then followed by a separate discussion which included Dr. Patricia Karam, MENA Regional Division Director at the International Republican Institute (IRI), and Dr. Paul Salem, President of MEI.

The panel discussion was moderated by ATFL Vice President Jean AbiNader. ATFL is committed to promoting voting in North America that is secure, transparent, and conducted fairly, with assurances that the ballots will be secure until they are counted after the May 15th election.
