The deuteron form factors are calculated in the framework of the relativistic nucleon-meson dynamics. The relativistic effects change considerably the S- and D-waves of the deuteron, result in the dominating extra component in the deuteron wave function and generate the contact interaction between the nucleon, mesons and photon. The prediction for the polarization observable t 20 is in good agreement with the recent data of TJNAF/CEBAF.
