Israel may still use paper ballots for the voting process, but the Central Election Committee is not oblivious to the latest technological options available to it.
Ahead of Tuesday's vote,
the Central Election Committee launched its new "real-time results app," which can be downloaded onto any smartphone off its website.
The committee said that the results would be updated every 10 minutes.
For those who do not have a smartphone, the Election Committee
promised a similar feature on its website, via dynamic graphs.

The committee has also team with Google
in Israel, and will use its Google Maps
service to present a geographic segmentation of the results, also in 10-minutes intervals.
Google.co.il will feature the map on a special tab added to its homepage on Election Day.
"It was important to us to present these technological advances," Omri Schneider, of the Central Election Committee, told Ynet Sunday.
"It will allow those who feel they have to be constantly updated do so every 10 minutes."
