Top election official aims for final tally to be announced Friday

Central Elections Committee head Orly Adas says another vote tally update is expected within 2-3 hours, and will include votes from 200 additional ballots stations.

Adas says that officials will start counting an estimated 450,000 absentee ballots cast in double envelopes by members of security forces, prisoners, diplomats, COVID-19 patients, those in quarantine and more.

Adas says she hopes all those votes will be counted by tomorrow evening and the final tally will be available on Friday.
