Voting Guide 2018

Municipal Elections will be held on 30 October 2018.
Election day is a holiday and voting is quick and easy.

Eligibility and polling place
Most citizens are eligible to vote.  You may vote only in your city of residence, as listed in your Teudat Zehut (ID card). Each voter is assigned to a polling place, according to place of residence. You may vote only at your assigned polling place.

Polling place procedure 
When you arrive at your polling place, you may have to queue.  When you get to the front of the line, you will be asked to provide a valid ID before you can vote.  Your options are the following (must be current):

  1. Teudat Zehut (ID card)
  2. Israeli passport
  3. Israeli driver’s license
  4. Personal military ID

When you hand over your ID, you will receive two envelopes: One yellow, one white.

You will go behind a screen to vote.  Select your choice for mayor from among the yellow slips and place it in the yellow envelope.  Select your choice of party from among the white slips and place it in the white envelope.

DO NOT mark your slips of paper or envelopes in any way – any mark will render your vote invalid.

Seal your envelopes and deposit them in the ballot box.

Collect your ID, and you’re done!

Enjoy the rest of the day.
