Voting Prayer

Rabbi David Seidenberg of NeoHasid.org posted a non-partisan prayer to be said in the voting booth. I highly recommend it to my fellow American Jews who will be voting this Tuesday, no matter which issues your vote turns on or who you are planning on voting for. I will probably personalize it when I use it, so feel free to do the same, whether you keep it general or want to relate it to the issues or candidates you care about.

As I did not write it, I take no responsibility for grammar or spelling.

My only problem with this is you shouldn't take any extra time in a voting booth, since other people are waiting to use it. I'd suggest doing the prayer while on line, or in your car, or outside the building.
