Paragraph 14

In order to sign in favour of a candidate, a voter has to complete information on his/her name, domicile, year of birth, number of identity document and date (Article 42.4 of the Electoral Code as modified by paragraph 6 of the draft law). While this is a plausible procedure to mitigate potential fraudulent or multiple signatures, the law does not provide specific provisions to assist sight-impaired or otherwise restricted persons who are not able to complete the required forms on their own. Providing guidance for such aspects of signature collection should be considered.
