Elections for the 17th Knesset officially began outside of Israel at midnight Wednesday as the voting booth in Canberra, Australia, opened. Around 4,000 government employees and emissaries of Jewish organizations are expected to vote in 92 Israeli voting stations worldwide. The last station expected to close will be in the Israeli consulate in Los Angeles on Friday morning. The Foreign Ministry will open a situation room within the next day to handle the elections. "During the course of the day we will follow the scope of the voters who arrive to vote, and we will receive continuous updates in order to keep track of the voters," Army Radio quoted the Foreign Ministry's supervisor of elections outside of Israel, Dani Gadot, as saying.
