Early voting procedures in the West Bank

A first look at early voting procedures in the volatile West Bank.

Palestinian Authority security officers have been given permission to vote early, so that they can be on duty during the normal election period. Nearly half of eligible voters turned out on the first day (of three) of early voting.

Hamas has objected to the early voting procedure because the names of voters are not being published at the polling places, as specified in the electoral laws.
