All the negative campaigning in Israel in the run-up to the April 9 elections has led many to dread casting the ballot more than celebrate their democratic right.

But in the midst of all the mud-slinging and fake-promise-campaigning, the Israeli embassy in Japan delivered a highlight that is sure to bring a smile to the current election cycle.

While in Israel there are two weeks left until election day, Israeli diplomats around the world cast their vote today in their respective embassies, and there was one that stood out from the rest of the crowd.

Shalom Chan is the name of the cute mascot of 'Israel in Japan' and on Thursday he demonstrated how the voting process works in Israel's embassy in Tokyo.

The chick, sporting a Star of David on his forehead, approaches the clerks to present his non-existent ID before heading behind the big blue box to choose his party.
