Children of immigrants from the US who have American citizenship but have never lived there are eligible to vote in the upcoming elections in 24 states, including six of the eight key battleground states, according to information on a US government website meant to help overseas voters.




Estimates of the number of Americans eligible to vote in the US living, working or studying in Israel vary widely from 100,000 to 250,000.




Jason Seymour, the deputy chief of the American citizens’ services section at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, said that in the 2008 elections an estimated 30,000 ballots were cast from Israel.




Seymour is in charge of an embassy outreach program aimed at helping American citizens in the country vote in the elections, some 55 days away.
