Four Jewish candidates are standing for election to a council which held a poll on Yom Kippur.
The four, together with a fifth candidate who is not Jewish, will compete for a seat on London's Haringey Council, following the death of Seven Sisters ward incumbent Fred Knight in November.
The ward is to the north of Stamford Hill and is home to a large number of strictly Orthodox residents.
In October the authority caused outrage among Jewish voters after scheduling a by-election in Alexandra ward on the holiest day of the year.
