The physically disabled who want to vote on Tuesday have not been forgotten. Yad Sarah announced on Tuesday that it will operate a fleet of wheelchair-accessible vehicles to take the disabled to their voting station. One need only call *6444 to make an appointment, and the voluntary organization will subsidize the cost.

Yad Sarah director-general Moshe Cohen said that it’s a “privilege to transport people who have difficulty going to vote and take an active part in this democratic process and influence society.

Meanwhile, Beit Loewenstein, the rehabilitation hospital in Ra’anan, said it will make it possible for all inpatients to vote between 8 a.m. ad 8 p.m. in the physiotherapy institute. Hospital employees who are on duty on Election Day will also be able to vote at the special facility instead of running home to their regular polling station.
