A savvy young man I know suggested that since today we’re having elections for the 19th Israeli Knesset (and thus prime minister as well), no doubt a few candidates awoke this morning with this song running through their heads (thanks EZ):
There’s a festive atmosphere in the air, which might be because everyone has a day off to vote. However, there have been many clever campaigns over the past few weeks to encourage people to get out and vote. Apparently, as of the hour of this writing the campaigns have been effective, since the number of people who have voted as of 11:00 am local time is up from the past four elections.
So, to you Israelis out there who haven’t yet voted, get thee to a polling station.
And may the best candidates win!
