More than 20,000 police, Border Police officers and police volunteers will be deployed across Israel on Tuesday to secure polling stations on Election Day, National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Monday.


The officers will be in charge of keeping the peace at some 10,132 polling stations with a focus on “ensuring that the public can exercise their right to vote without any problems whatsoever,” Rosenfeld said, adding that acts of political vandalism in recent days have highlighted the importance of a strong police presence on Election Day.


“In recent days you've had incidents of people tearing down signs or burning books because of internal rivalries or other things and this is something that we are keeping in mind for tomorrow.”
