Voting for prisoners and detainees

​Prisoners and detainees are entitled to vote in the prisons and holding cells.

Prison guards, police officers and the ballot committee members working in the prisons and cells on election day are also entitled to vote in the prison ballot boxes.

The voter will place his voting envelope inside another envelope, upon which the ballot committee will write his name and Identification Number, as well as his address.  The voter will place this double envelope into the ballot box.

These votes will be counted in the Knesset along with all the votes that are cast in double envelopes, such as those of soldiers, inpatients, diplomats, etc.  The outer envelopes will be discarded before the votes are counted, such that the votes will be counted in complete confidentiality, without the voters personal information.
