Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu voted in his Likud party's primary at the Binyanei Ha'uma Conference Center in Jerusalem Tuesday morning a short time after polls opened.

Urging party activists to come out and vote, Netanyahu warned that "If the inactive majority stays home, we get an inaccurate picture" of what party activists want. "If everyone comes and votes, we get a clear picture," he told reporters.

"I take every election seriously," he said, expressing hope that the turnout would be closer to 100 percent than the 40 percent who voted in the previous primary.
