Don't Know Where To Vote?

3 of the Eleventh Month 5769

Don't know where to vote in the Israeli National Elections?

Didn't get your handy-dandy information card from the Interior Ministry?

No problem.

Just click here. Yes, it's in Hebrew. DO NOT PANIC! Scroll down a bit. You will see two empty lines to be filled in, the first with the numerical verification code found to the right, and the second with you te'udath zehuth (Israeli ID) number. Click the button to the immediate left. A new window will pop out and provide with the address of your polling location, and your polling station number.

Yes, it's in Hebrew. There's nothing I can do about that. Just print it out, or have someone else translate the information for you from the screen. Please try not to let Hebrew or any other potential frustration get in the way of exercising your right to vote, especially if you are a new citizen!

There are often more than one polling station at each location. This number will help you find yours more quickly, especially if you live in a big city. The polling stations with your names do not necessarily go according to the alef-beth order you might expect.

If you still have difficulties figuring out where to vote, you can always call 1-800-200-135.
