Paragraph 66

 In general, voting rights of military personnel is exercised according to Articles 29.4 and 39.4, at ordinary precincts where military units are located. However, the 2004 Joint Recommendations note that:

19. According to the Law, Article 123 (1), conscripts cannot vote during local elections. According to the same Article, paragraph (2), voters who do not live in the respective district shall not have the right to vote during the same elections. It was probably this last paragraph, which caused the controversy about students’ right to vote during the 2003 elections. In Chisinau students would be a significant group and their vote may be decisive there.
