Throughout the day Thursday – officially dubbed "Dead Sea Day" by the Tourism Ministry – mayors across Israel and Tourism Minister Stas Meseznikov voted and encouraged residents to come vote at public voting booths for the New 7 Wonders of Nature Campaign that concludes next Friday. Mayors led voting campaigns on Thursday in Haifa, Tel Aviv and Ashdod, while 260 teenagers from the Moshavim movement encouraged people around the country to vote on Wednesday, according to the Tourism Ministry.

"The Dead Sea is an amazing and one-of-a-kind site, the lowest point in the world, and there is something unique and magical," said Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai in a statement. "This site is undoubtedly one of the wonders of the world. We too in Tel Aviv-Yafo will contribute our share and vote for the Dead Sea."
