Some 3000 IDF soldiers had cast their ballots at 60 polling stations by Monday ahead of Tuesday's Knesset election, Army Radio reported.

IDF soldiers began voting on Sunday at the Defense Ministry compound (Kirya) in Tel Aviv. Hundreds more static and mobile ballot boxes were dispersed to IDF units around Israel to ensure that soldiers cast their votes.

The IDF anticipated that compared to the general population, voter turnout among soldiers would be higher primarily because of military educational programs on the subject.
