Voting for the 17th Knesset begins today for officials in 91 Israeli embassies and other official offices abroad. As usual, the members of the Israeli embassy in Canberra, Australia, will be the first to have a say in the shaping of the next Knesset. Altogether, some 4,500 Israelis have the right to vote abroad, including nine members of the smallest Israeli legation (Chad) and 1,000 in New York, the largest representation. The ballots will be sent by diplomatic mail directly to the Knesset for counting.
