Fearing the low voter turnout in the Tel Aviv municipal election on Tuesday evening incumbent candidate Ron Huldai called on eligible voters to exercise their right to vote.
Huldai faces strong competition from popular Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz.
At 4 and 6 p.m. voter turnout in Tel Aviv was 15% and 21% respectively.
"The low voter turnout in Tel Aviv to this point should worry everyone," Huldai wrote on his Facebook page.
"Tel Aviv more than any other city in Israel reflects the spirit of free choice
and democracy and today is the day to prove that. I call on all eligible voters to vote and influence the future of our city," he wrote.
