Article 5.28

While establishing the election results for the bodies at each level of authority, the Election Commission of Bosnia and Herzegovina shall take into account a ballot cast by mail by a voter abroad, provided the ballot is delivered to the Election Commission of Bosnia and Herzegovina by postal authorities by a time and date to be determined by the Election Commission in its regulations.  In order to be acceptable, the ballots are to be postmarked by election day.


By mail ballots that are not delivered in compliance with the previous paragraph shall not be counted. 


In order for a timely delivered by mail ballot to be counted, it must be returned by a voter who has been determined to be properly registered to vote by mail, sealed in the ballot envelope to ensure secrecy of the person’s vote, and accompanied by a copy of an identification document described in Article 5.12 of this law.
