Parties plead with supporters to vote as election day winds down

As the clock ticks down to polls closing at 10 p.m., some parties are continuing to frantically urge supporters to the ballot box.

“Right-wing rule is in danger due to Likud voters staying at home,” party head Benjamin Netanyahu tweets. Go now to vote to save the right-wing government at the last moment. Make sure to bring as many Likud voters as possible.”

New Hope head Gideon Saar is warning that Likud leader Netanyahu is “close to his 61st seat if you don’t vote now.”

“Bring friends,” he says in a video.

Blue and White head Benny Gantz, meanwhile, is continuing to push against Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid, releasing a slickly produced video accusing him of spreading “fake news,” for claiming that Blue and White is doing well.
