So how many Kadima supporters came out to vote so far?

As of 8:30 in this time zone, 40 percent of registered members eligible to vote came out:
Kadima's Central Elections Committee postponed the closing of election booths by half an hour on Wednesday evening following a request made by party leader candidate and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's campaign because of a low turnout rate.

The committee had initially extended the voting period by an hour, but a petition filed immediately after the committee authorized Livni's request by Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, also running for candidacy, caused the committee to reconsider its decision.

The polling stations were originally scheduled to close at 10 p.m., after 12 hours of operation. By 8:30 p.m., nearly 40% of Kadima members had cast their votes.
Gee, that's low, I'd say. Even Labor's own primaries usually got higher turnout than they did within that amount of time.

Update: the exit polls were announced, and who won? Tzipi Livni.

I want to make perfectly clear here that she is no Sarah Palin. She's probably closer to Hilary Clinton. Therefore, don't think even for a second that Livni can help anything.
