Today the Prime Minister announced that the election will be held on September 14. This coincides with the Jewish Day of Atonement Yom Kippur. As a matter of personal conscience I will be unable to participate on Election Day. It is my practice, with my wife Amanda, to observe Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement).
I hope my constituents will respect my consistency in this matter just as I try to be consistent in others.
