Highest Israeli voter turnout since 1999

Regardless of the results of yesterday’s Israeli elections (the 3rd in a year), we saw the highest voter turnout since 1999, according to The Times of Israel:

The Central Elections Committee said that 65.5 percent of registered voters cast their ballots by 8 p.m. — the highest figure for the hour since 1999.

Although I have my preferences for who will form a coalition (and my strong hope that someone actually forms a coalition this time), I’m proud of Israelis for turning out in these numbers to have their say.
