Where Do I Vote? Find Your Polling Place Online or By Phone.
There are three ways to check whether you are on the electoral rolls and registered for the right place.
- Go to https://www.gov.il/apps/moin/bocharim/
- Enter your Israeli ID number (mispar teudat zehut / מס’ תעודת זהות) and the date your ID was issued (תאריך הנפקת תעודת הזהות)
- Solve the reCaptcha challenge
- Click on “לאיתור קלפי”
- SMS: Send your Israeli ID number and the date your ID was issued to 050-808-5500
- Phone: Call toll-free 1-800-222-290. Phone operators are available Sunday through Thursday from 08:30 to 22:00 and on Friday from 08:30 to 13:30.
Your results will include the address where you will be casting your vote, the name of the place where you will be voting (e.g., a local school), and the number of your polling station within your polling place.
Why Should I Check My Polling Place?
Except for soldiers, reservists, people who are hospitalized, or prisoners, every Israeli must vote in their assigned polling place. You will not be allowed to vote elsewhere.
Updating My Polling Place
If you are assigned the wrong polling place (perhaps because you moved but have yet to update your address), contact the Population and Immigration Authority (רשות האוכלוסין וההגירה) of the Ministry of Interior (משרד הפנים / Misrad HaPanim) to update your address immediately.
You may update your address at your local branch of the Population and Immigration Authority; see the search page to find the branch closest to you.
