Arab voter turnout in the April elections for the 21st Knesset was the lowest in decades, around 49 percent, compared to just under 64 percent in the March, 2015, national ballot. A survey on voting intentions in the Arab Israeli sector ahead of the September election has found that around 42 percent of those polled intend to vote, while 32 percent are still undecided. The survey found that issues of concern to Arab Israeli voters are violence in the sector, the nation-state law, the educational system, housing, house and land demolitions, poverty and unemployment.

The survey was carried out for the organizations Abraham Initiatives, aChord and Sikkuy. KAN's Naomi Segal heard more about the findings from Ron Gerlitz, co-executive director of Sikkuy, the Association for the Advancement of Civic Equality.
