Polling stations are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Where can I vote?
You can find your polling station in three ways:
1. Online at http://kalpi.elections.gov.il/.
Enter your Israeli ID number.
2. Send an SMS with your Israeli ID number to 052-999-1919.
3. Call 1-800-800-508.
The address of the polling station where you are registered is also on a Voter Notification Card (Hoda’a L’bocher) that was mailed to you. It includes the address of your polling place, a note on whether it is handicapped-accessible and its hours of operation.
Soldiers (active and reservists) can vote on their bases or on vehicles that are mobile polls.
Handicapped-accessible polling places can be found by calling 1-800-800-508.
Handicapped individuals may vote at a handicapped-accessible polling place, even if it is not their assigned polling place as listed in the Voter Notification.
What should I bring?
An Israeli identification card (Teudat Zehut), an Israeli’s driver’s license, or an Israeli passport that is not expired.
How do I vote?
You will vote twice.
1. With a yellow slip of paper for mayor. You will put that in a yellow envelope.
2. With a white slip of paper for city council.
You will put that in a white envelope.
If no mayoral candidate wins at least 40% of the vote, a second round of elections will be held on November 5, 2013. A second round will also be held if both candidates receive an equal number of votes.Courtesy of kololeh.com and NoFryers.com
