Acceptable forms of voter identification for the upcoming Israel elections.
Did you get the pink slip for voter identification in the next Israel elections?
Close to the time of any election all registered voters, over the age of 18 will receive the official, pink voter information and notification slip from Misrad Hapnim (Israel Ministry of the Interior) in the mail. This notification, as shown below, can be presented at the polling stations on election day (together with an identity document). Detailed on the voting slip is your name, your personal voting details and information regarding the polling station where you are required to cast your ballot.
If for some reason you do not receive this slip, you can still cast your vote by presenting one of the following four official identification documents:
- Teudat Zehut – Israel I.D. card
- A valid passport
- Valid driver’s license
- IDF ‘Hoger’ identity card
Identification documents, without a photograph, are NOT considered valid means of identification for the purpose of the election (for example your Health Fund membership card, credit card or retail club card).
There is only one official voter notification card in Israel – it’s pink and it looks like this and we have translated the important parts:
Take it with you to your the polling station that has been allocated to you.
