The Central Election Committee will begin counting votes of soldiers, prisoners, physically disabled persons and other voters who voted in double envelopes. The tens of thousands of votes are likely to shift up to six Knesset seats in the parliament as predicted on Wednesday morning. Statisticians say IDF soldiers, who make the bulk of the double-envelope voters, tend to vote to right-wing parties and might strengthen Likud even more at the expense of Kadima. The results of the count are expected as early as Thursday evening.
