Sarah Silverman on Wednesday tweeted her support for the Israeli leftist party Meretz ahead of next week's election.

- The Left Must Abandon Its Comfort Zone
"If you are a Meretz supporter you NEED to VOTE MARCH 17," the Jewish American actress and comedienne wrote. "Every vote counts. If you don't vote, you can't complain."
This isn't the first time that Silverman voices her opinions on matters of Israeli politics. Ahead of the 2013 election, Silverman called on followers to vote for either Meretz or the Green party.
Meretz launched a new campaign on Tuesday warning of a scenario in which it does not make into the Knesset, with the slogan “We must not lose Meretz. It depends on you alone.”
In this campaign, Meretz acknowledges for the first time that it might not get into the Knesset because voters are going over to Zionist Union. Meretz got two seats in two polls that were published on Tuesday, by Channel Two and by the Knesset Channel. Meretz is considered the only left-wing Jewish party.
ISRAEL! If you are a Meretz supporter you NEED to VOTE MARCH 17. Every vote counts. If you don't vote, you can't complain
Its campaign is directed toward undecided voters who are considering voting for Zionist Union, out of the thought that the large gap between it and Likud will lead the president to give the task of forming the government to Isaac Herzog.
