US citizens from 36 states voted from Israel in the 2014 midterm election last week, according to foreign voter facilitation organization iVoteIsrael.

“iVoteIsrael is pleased to announce that 30,000 Americans from 36 different states have cast their ballots in the 2014 elections from Israel,” iVoteIsrael national director Matt Solomon commented.

“This represents an unprecedented increase in voter participation from Israel in a non-presidential election.”

Solomon said that, typically, only 1 percent of American expatriates vote in non-presidential elections and 5% in presidential elections, but 18% of eligible US citizens in Israel voted in Tuesday’s election.

Data for international voter participation is not yet available.
