Turnout remains weakest in years, with 60.9% voting by 8 p.m.

Central Elections Committee head Orly Adas announces that turnout remains low, with 60.9% of eligible voters casting ballots by 8 p.m.

The number remains 4.7% lower than the last election, and the lowest since 2009, when 59.7% had voted by this point.

Reports indicate that turnout is especially low in Arab majority locales, under 50 percent by many estimations, leading to fears of poor results for the Joint List and Ra’am.
