The Labor-Gesher party filed a request with the Central Elections Committee demanding that votes from three polling stations in Bnei Brak be invalidated after it was reported that Haredim went to polling stations with fake IDs claiming they were from Labor and posed as observers working on Labor's behalf.

After the committee at the polling station refused to stop the voting, the Labor party turned to the Central Elections Committee with an urgent request that the committee check all observers at polling stations in Bnei Brak claiming that they are from Labor-Gesher and to invalidate any polling stations they sat at."Labor-Gesher is in danger, we are in a really bloody battle," tweeted the party. "Netanyahu's messengers want to make the Labor party disappear. Only your Emet slip (the ballot slip of Labor-Gesher) and an Emet slip from your friend/acquaintance will send Netanyahu home."

Later in the day, the Labor party received a number of complaints from multiple polling stations in Beersheba about Likud members switching Labor-Gesher ballot slips with old slips from when Labor was lead by Avi Gabbay. The party filed a complain with the Central Elections Committee.
