President Reuven Rivlin cast his ballot at a voting station in Jerusalem during the Knesset Elections on September 17, 2019.

The percentage of voters turning out in Israel for Tuesday’s national Knesset elections this time around has risen consistently throughout the day, over the numbers that were seen in the April 9, 2019 election.

At 6 pm, 53.5 percent of eligible voters had already cast their ballots – 1.5 percent more than in the previous election.

The increase is attributed to the unusually high percentage of voters among the leftist and Arab sector this time around.
