In 2013, only 39.1% of Jerusalem residents voted in the municipal elections. The low voter turnout was mainly due to the low participation, only 1.6%, of Arab East Jerusalem residents. 55.3% of Jerusalem’s non-Arab residents participated in the election.
Neighborhoods with the highest voting rate were Ramat-Shlomo (82.2%), Ramot-Alon North (72.5%) and Giv’at-Shaul (71.4%). The lowest voting rates in non-Arab neighborhoods were in the City Center (35.2%), Musrara (37.2%) and Ge’ula & Mea She’arim (38.2%).
