Within the time designed for ballot it is forbidden to close the premises where the ballot takes place or to suspend the ballot except for cases of mass disorders, natural disasters, or other unexpected circumstances, which endanger the voters or make impossible the further performance of the ballot. In such cases, the chairman of the electoral committee of this polling station may suspend the ballot for 2 hours the most, time when the premises are appropriately brought in order or shall find another place for ballot, informing the voters about this decision.
Persons entitled to assist at the ballot may not be forced to leave the premises of the polling station in case of ballot suspension.
