Article 79

Voting at the polling session

Voters are required to prove their identity to the electoral commission, for instance, by stating their name and producing an identification document or an ID card, or in another manner accepted as satisfactory in the opinion of the electoral commission. If a voter is thus entitled to cast a vote according to the electoral register, the electoral commission then hands the voter a ballot paper.
