“Choose for your tribes wise, understanding, and experienced men, and I will appoint them as your heads.” (Deuteronomy 1:13)

With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrating a resounding victory in Tuesday’s elections, millions of people across Israel came out in droves to cast their votes. Whether supporting the right or the left, each vote represents a voice among Israeli society.

From IDF soldiers to Israeli Arabs to ultra-orthodox Jews to your average Israeli, new records were made in the 2015 elections as voters made sure to make their voice heard.

Here are some pictures from election day, highlighting the highs and lows of the 2015 Knesset elections.
