All polls are open across the country in the election showdown for Histadrut labor federation chairman, between the current head Ofer Eini, and Labor MK Eitan Cabel.

Initial voter turnout was high, already reaching 12.5 percent by mid-morning.

Eini was regarded as a heavy favorite in the days going into the election and already received the crucial endorsement of labor party head Shelly Yacimovich.
