The Labor Party's 60,000 members will go to the polls Thursday and vote the old fashioned way: With paper and a pencil.

Labor decided to learn a lesson from the Likud's Knesset race, which was marred by computer glitches that resulted in the election's extension by a day.
The party is using Aman, the same company as Likud, to run the election. Labor will employ computers to maintain its list of which members voted and to scan the ballots, in order to expedite results.

Polls will open at 10am Thursday and close at 10pm. Results are expected by Friday morning.
