Early Voting in Israel: Update

Legislation allowing absentee voting by Israeli expatriates failed, 25-23. Mark Levinson speculates that the Left defeated the bill because they thought it would dilute the Arab vote. Levinson believes this belief is unwarranted, and that high-tech expatriates in particular would be likely to vote for the Left.

Interesting note in the story: 49 countries allow their expatriates to vote in absentia.
