The streets, cafes and beaches of Tel Aviv were buzzing on Tuesday as residents cast their ballots and then enjoyed the rest of the national holiday.

Members of the V15 movement, calling for a change of government, ensured that passersby were exercising their rights to vote, as campaigners for various parties lined entrances to polling stations.

Tel Aviv resident Maayan told The Jerusalem Post that he she had made a last-minute decision to vote Meretz because she didn't like the prospect of a government without the left-wing party.

Voter Dolev said that after supporting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the past two elections, he has decided it's time for change and is backing the Zionist Union, while Likud-supporter Ayala said it was particularly important to her to vote Netanyahu now, in the face of growing support for the Zionist Union.
