It now appears that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party has a clear path to build a right-wing coalition. That coalition would consist of Likud (35), Shas (8), United Torah Judaism (8), Union of Right-Wing Parties (5), Yisrael Beytenu (5), and Kulanu (4), for a total of 65 seats.

The opposition will most likely be made up of Benny Gantz's Blue and White (35), Hadash-Ta'al (6), Labor (6), Meretz (4), and UAL-Balad (4), with 55 seats in total.
Election data was made available early this morning via the the Central Elections Council's website, giving Israelis the opportunity to view the results for each city, town - and even specific ballot boxes.
Tel Aviv-Yafo
Unsurprisingly, Benny Gantz's Blue and White faction handily won in Tel Aviv-Yafo with almost 46% of the vote. Likud came in second with 19%, followed by far-Left Meretz with 9% and the more center-Left Labor with 8.5%.

Almost the opposite of Tel Aviv, Likud won 43% of the vote in Beersheba, beating the Blue and White's 18%, while 9.5% voted for Yisrael Beytenu.

Blue and White took Haifa with 33% of the vote, followed by the Likud with 24% and Yisrael Beytenu with 7%.
The residents of Nazareth, Israel's largest Arab city, voted 53% for Hadash-Ta'al, and close to 30% for UAL-Balad, 7% for Meretz and 4% for Blue and White.

Israel's northernmost town voted 48% for Blue and White. Likud received 14%, and Labor received 11%.

The southernmost city in Israel mostly voted for Likud with 43% of the vote. Blue and White took 26%.
Settlements near Jerusalem 
In the largest West Bank settlement, the haredi city of Modi'in Ilit, voters opted 80% for UTJ, and 17% for Shas. Just 0.1% (22 people) voted for Blue and White, and three people voted for Hadash-Ta'al. 
In the haredi settlement Beitar Illit, 63% of voters chose UTJ, while 26.5% voted for Shas. 

In Ma'aleh Adumim, a mixed religious-secular settlement just outside Jerusalem, Netanyahu had a very strong showing with 50% of the votes - more than 10,000 people. Ten percent opted for Gantz, while 8% voted for the United Right and just 7% for the New Right. 

While the New Right party of Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked may not cross the electoral threshold, it was the overwhelming winner in the Etzion bloc. Most of the neighborhoods in the settlement bloc south of Jerusalem gave their most votes to Bennett.

Efrat, the largest town in the bloc, went 34% for Bennett, 24% for Netanyahu, 23% for the United Right and 9% for Zehut. Alon Shvut gave 37% of its votes to the New Right, 32% to the United Right and 15.5% to Netanyahu. Neve Daniel went 40% for Bennett, 28% to the New Right and 17.5% to Netanyahu.   

In Mevo Modiim, otherwise known as the Carlebach Moshav, the town's 186 eligible voters were fairly split. They went 23% for Netanyahu, 21% for Moshe Feiglin, 18% for the United Right and 11% for the new right. 

Kiryat Arba

Located next to the Palestinian city of Hebron, the settlement voted mostly for the Union of Right Wing Parties at 46%, while Likud received 33%. Interestingly, though the settlement is known as a bastion of the far Right, 14 people voted for Meretz and five voted for Labor.
Kfar Chabad and Bnei Brak

The voters of Kfar Chabad opted 56% for the United Right Parties, 19% for UTJ and 16% for Likud. 

Bnei Brak, the largest haredi city, gave 61% of its vote to UTJ, and 25% to Shas. Likud received just 5% of the vote there, with all other parties falling below the electoral threshold of 3.25%.

Sderot and Gaza envelope

In the cities and towns of the Gaza envelope - which have been plagued by rocket fire in recent months - the voters were split. 

In the city of Sderot, 43.5% of voters chose Likud, while 10% voted for Yisrael Beytenu 10% for the United Right and just 9% for Blue and White. 

In the Ein Habesor moshav, 54% voted for Gantz, while 16% chose Likud. In Kibbutz Be'eri, Labor received 45% of the vote, Blue and White 37% and Meretz 14%. In Kfar Aza, 55% chose Gantz, 21% Labor, 8% Meretz and 5% Likud. 

Umm al-Fahm
One of the largest Arab cities in Israel, an overwhelming 80% of residents voted for Hadash-Ta'al, the union of the Jewish-Arab Communist Party and the Arab Movement for Renewal Party, while 12% chose UAL-Balad, a union of Arab nationalist parties. Some 39 residents voted for the Likud.

In Israel's only Bedouin city, located in the Negev near Beersheba, 48.5% of residents chose UAL-Balad, while 40% chose Hadash-Ta'al.
Daliyat al-Carmel

Some 55% of Israel's largest Druze city voted for Blue and White, 24% voted for Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu Party and 9% of the votes went to Meretz.

The residents of this village are Alawites, the same religion followed by Syrian President Bashar Assad. Ghajar has been the subject of a decades-long border dispute between Israel and Lebanon; most residents hold Israeli citizenship. The village mostly voted for Kulanu, at 37%, followed by Blue and White with 24% and Likud with 15.5%.
