Where can I vote?

Be the first to know - Join our Facebook page.

You can find your polling station in three ways:

1. Online at http://kalpi.elections.gov.il/.

Enter your Israeli ID number.

2. Send an SMS with your Israeli ID number to 052-999-1919.

3. Call 1-800-800-508.

The address of the polling station where you are registered is also on a Voter Notification Card (Hoda’a L’bocher) that was mailed to you. It includes the address of your polling place, a note on whether it is handicapped-accessible and its hours of operation.

Soldiers (active and reservists) can vote on their bases or on vehicles that are mobile polls.

Handicapped-accessible polling places can be found by calling 1-800-800-508.

Handicapped individuals may vote at a handicapped-accessible polling place, even if it is not their assigned polling place as listed in the Voter Notification.

What should I bring?

An Israeli identification card (Teudat Zehut), an Israeli’s driver’s license, or an Israeli passport that is not expired.

How do I vote?

You will vote twice.

1. With a yellow slip of paper for mayor. You will put that in a yellow envelope.

2. With a white slip of paper for city council.

You will put that in a white envelope.

If no mayoral candidate wins at least 40% of the vote, a second round of elections will be held on November 5, 2013. A second round will also be held if both candidates receive an equal number of votes.
