Article 59

59.-(1) Once a general election has been called, the Minister for the Interior shall see to it that ship's masters of Danish ships in foreign waters and chiefs at Danish off-shore installations are notified accordingly.

(2) As soon as the ship's master of a Danish ship in foreign waters is informed that a general election has been called, the ship's master shall see to it that advance voting on board takes place without delay. Advance voting procedures may, however, be dispensed with, if, even using the fastest way of dispatch, the advance votes cannot be expected to reach their destination before polling starts on election day, or if compelling and urgent business so prevents. Similar rules shall apply to Danish off-shore installations.
