At the urging of immediate past CTSC president, Rabbi John Spitzer Coming Together embarked on an initiative to assist people in exercising their right and obligation to vote by providing voting information leading up to an election. Collaborating with the Canton Area Women Voters League, the Coming Together At The Polls (CTATP) strategy came into sharp focus in 2014. Other partners have included: Action for Social Equity, NAACP - Massillon, and WHBC Radio. Since then, CTATP has informed hundreds of the voting process and registered many people to vote. This is an ongoing initiative.
