Israelis head to polls to elect 19th Knesset

(YNET.COM) More than 2 million Israelis have exercised their right to vote as of 2 pm as polling stations struggle to keep up with the flow of voters. This indicates a particularly high Israel.

President Shimon Peres voted at the Charles E. Smith High School for the Arts in Jerusalem. “Today the state is asking citizens to vote for a free, beautiful, democratic country,” he said after casting his ballot.

He wished success to all the candidates and called on the public to exercise their right to vote.
