      First Voting Stations Open on IDF Base

      Ahead of Tuesday's elections, the first voting booth will open Saturday evening on the IDF base HaKirya in Tel Aviv. The early opening will allow dozens of soldiers to vote with more voting stations to open in the coming days on military bases throughout the country. Military turnout in the last election was similar to that of civil turnout and Col. Avi Baruch, who is in charge of voting in the IDF, said that this time the military is planning for an even stronger voter turnout.
