Low voter turnout was reported in cities across the country when Israelis went
to the ballot box for municipal elections on Tuesday, with 42.63 percent of
Israel’s 5,469,041 eligible voters casting their votes at the country’s 8,771
polling stations as of 8:30 p.m.
The numbers were a significant drop from
2008, when 51% of voters took part across Israel, and far below the 66.6%
turnout in the last Knesset election.
