Article 53 par. 3, as amended in March 2008, deleted the part in the old provision which stated that “when issuing (a) ballot paper(s), the voter’s Personal Number shall be specified in the relevant columns of the voters list”. This may have been deleted because in practice the voters’ list is compiled with the Personal Numbers of voters already included. However, in the 2008 elections, there were cases of voters not being allowed to vote because their Personal Number on the voters’ list was incorrect and did not coincide with the Personal Number of the identification shown by the voter. To avoid disenfranchising voters, it is recommended that a solution be sought to allow voters to correct such errors in time to enable them to cast their vote afterwards.
