The Get out the Vote from jail or Israeli Prison turnout

New fun Israel election fact. Ynet News:

Voting closed at 8 pm on Tuesday at the Israel Prison Service with 81.74% of the 10,000 eligible citizens serving time in prison carrying out their right to vote.
I am not surprised prisoners can vote, we have been doing that for years in Canada, but what surprises me is that they cannot get a better turnout from the prisoner population.

Update:  I found a picture from today's vote in an unnamed Israeli prison at Jpost...Photo Credit: Ben Hartman
