Interior Ministry increases voter information ads, services

January 20, 2013 11:24

The Central Election Committee will increase advertisements explaining that it is possible to vote without a "notice to voters" postcard, following an instruction by Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Sunday.

Yishai's directive followed complaints about the company hired to distribute the postcards from those who never received the notice in the mail. If the company does not fix its shortcomings before Election Day, the Interior Ministry will not pay for its services.

The Interior Ministry will also allocate more resource to voter information lines, which citizens can call to inquire about where to vote.

"Voting is a right, and the Interior Ministry is committed to ensuring all citizens can exercise that right," Yishai stated.
