60. Article 68 provides that a voter must state the voter’s name, present proof of identity, and hand over the written notification of elections which the voter received. However, Article 68 does not state what documents are acceptable for establishing proof of identity. Nor does Article 68 address the situation where a voter did not receive or has lost the written notification of elections. The OSCE/ODIHR and the Venice Commission recommend that the law list the forms of identification which are sufficient to establish a voter’s identity. Further, it is recommended that the law should clearly state that failure to present the written notification of elections should not prevent a voter from voting.
