Interruption of polling
In the event of circumstances that interrupt either the start, continuation, or end of polling, a polling district commission may either postpone the start of polling or extend the time for polling. However, the total time for polling (section 25(3)) must not be shortened by such measures. A polling district commission shall inform electors of such measures in a manner customary thereat. In the event that polling is interrupted, a polling district commission shall seal the electoral documents and ballot boxes. At the resumption of polling, the polling district commission shall check that the seals have not been broken. The circumstances which interrupted the start, continuation, or end of polling, and the fact that the seals were not broken, shall be stated by the polling district commission in its record of the conduct and result of polling for the polling district.
