Israeli soldiers helped vote in a new government on January 22nd.
Israelis voted in a new government on January 22nd. Soldiers across the country voted on their bases, far from home.
As the polls closed in Israel's 2013 general election, officials recorded high voter turnout, and exit polls showed a very narrow victory for the currently ruling right-wing parties.At least 64 percent of eligible Israeli voters turned out on Tuesday, the highest turnout since the hotly contested 1999 election.
Two hundred and seventeen thousand, 5.5 percent of the entire vote, ballots were counted. Many of these were first-time voters, exercising their right for the first time ever.
