  1. All Israeli citizens resident in Israel are automatically registered to vote. With a few exceptions (diplomats and such), there is no overseas or absentee ballot.
  2. The voters register is opened for public inspection a certain time before an election. Any challenges (missing voters, etc.) may be submitted then.
  3. Voters are removed from the list on report of their death. This is possible because the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for both the population register and the voters register.
  4. In order to vote, you MUST present your national ID card at your assigned polling station. This contains a picture of the bearer, and also has a place for noting whether the bearer has voted in elections. This makes it difficult to double-vote.
Israel has relatively little election fraud. Most cases are either the traditional ballot-box stuffing (with the connivance of corrupt polling station officials) or identity theft (with forged national ID cards). Given the relatively high voting rate in Israel, both will likely be detected.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
