1,200 people to check identities on election day

The Central Elections Committee will issue a tender for a company which will employ 1,200 people to check everyone who claims to be entitled to cast his election ballot, it announced on Tuesday. The workers will also count up the double-envelop ballots. Those entitled to vote by placing their ballot in one envelop and then placing that envelop in another one, to protect their identity, are soldiers and policemen on duty, sick people, those entitled to vote abroad and those whose mobility is restricted. The examination and counting will begin on Election Day, March 28 and last two or three days. The pay will be between NIS 63 and NIS 84 per hour.
