The Likud’s election committee decided to add an extra day of voting in the party’s primary Monday to make up for computer glitches across the country that plagued the party all day Sunday.

Fifty of the 132 polling stations will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to give another chance to the half of the 123,351 Likud members who did not vote Sunday.

While the 50 percent turnout on Sunday was higher than the 48% who voted in the last election four years ago, the election committee decided the additional day of voting was needed to make the vote fair, and avoid potential lawsuits.
