Polls Open in Nazareth and Beit Shemesh


Polls opened, Tuesday morning, in the hotly-contested races for mayor in the Galilee city of Nazareth and the city of Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem. The Supreme Court ordered new elections following close margins and allegations of irregularities. In Nazareth, precinct officials were recruited from outside the city to lessen the possibility of impropriety.

Police have been deployed in both cities to maintain order at polling places.
