Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin's grandfather, Arkadi Verchovsky, died at age 90 at his polling place in Neve Yaakov, immediately after voting.

Verchovsky was a veteran of World War II who fought in the Red Army. He moved to Israel from the US in 2004.

Elkin told Ma'ariv that his grandfather was active until his last day, and even went out to convince his neighbors to vote for Likud last week.
