Elections, Israeli Style
They're colorful. They're intense. They're like a carnival. They're democratic.
Election Day in Israel is a public holiday, ensuring voter turnout of about 80 percent. After voting, there's not much to do except to go home and wait for the exit polls. Unless it's a close race, winners can look forward to celebration in the street under a shower of leftover ballot slips.
