Reports: Increased Arab Voter Turnout in Israeli Election


Arutz Sheva reports:  Voter turnout in Israel was up significantly Tuesday morning in comparison with turnout levels at the same stage in previous elections.

As of 12:00 p.m. Tuesday, five hours after the first polling places opened, the Central Elections Committee reported that the turnout level had reached 26.8%, with 1,713,936 votes having been cast before noon. That represents a 2.0% increase over the turnout level by 12:00 p.m. in the April election, when 24.8% of eligible voters had cast ballots. 

The turnout thus far Tuesday is close to the level reached by noon in the 2015 election (26.9%), and slightly above the level reached in 2013 (26.7%). By noon on election day in 2009, the turnout level had reached 23.4%, while in 2006 it hit 21.7%, 24% in 2003, 21.2% in 2001, and 28.9% in 1999.

  1. “Surprisingly high levels of turnout in the Arab sector,” said Channel 13’s Eli Levi while reporting from the Israeli-Arab town of Kfar Manda in the Galilee. “Long lines at the voting stations since the early morning, and a high level of interest I haven’t seen in many years.”

    The only valid question needing to be asked here is: Can these people really expect any better from any other jew??? Seriously?????

  2. So is there a contest between Jews and Palestinians to see who would win the Best Walking Contradiction Award? #1 is right here!

  3. Wtf do they expect to come out of elections? As the comments here state, it’s as pointless and farcical as elections here. What are their choices, Zionist 1 or 2? Dumb f-ks traded guns for ballot boxes at the request of their Zionist paid sellouts.
