A day ahead of elections, President Shimon Peres urged Israeli citizens to vote on Tuesday.

"Tomorrow I am going to vote. I'm doing it with excitement and pride. It is very important that everyone of us will show the world that this is a democratic state with citizens who love the state and democracy," he said.

Peres led a social media campaign to encourage citizens to vote, under the banner "friend brings voter."
