The election law determines the voting time from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. It would be good to have a provision in the Law that grants the right to vote to every person who happens to be at the polling station at the time when it closes down (i.e. 9 p.m), provided s/he has been there in the time envisaged for voting. Thereby, it provides that no voters can be prevented from voting due to the possibilaty of a crowded polling stations. In case of elections in Gagauzia, such a provision may be important and the Law should prescribe the possibility that as many as 3,000 voters can vote at one polling station.
