Voter turnout for the 2018 municipal elections is expected to surpass the 2013 turnout. There are 20 lists competing for the 30 seats at Safra Square.

The number of votes required to capture each seat will depend on the number of Jerusalemites who vote. Only 39.1% of the residents voted in the 2013 elections, a significant drop from the 43.26% who voted in 2008. Observers expect the downward trend to be reversed this year and there are there are a number of initiatives in place to enhance the percentage of participation – especially among the young generation.
