At 6:00 a.m., the Chairperson shall establish the polling station by requesting the scrutineers to participate and inviting representatives of the lists of candidates to follow the operations.
Upon designation of the Chairperson, one of the two scrutineers shall act as deputy Chairperson and the other as office secretary.
If one or both scrutineers are absent or if they have not been designated, the Chairperson shall ask the voters present, provided that their number is not lower than ten, to designate the replacement(s) of the missing scrutineer(s), by roll-call and majority vote.
If the number of voters present is lower than ten, the Chairperson shall replace the missing scrutineer by calling, alternately, the oldest and the youngest voter present and meeting the requirements referred to in Art. 23, paragraphs 6 and 7.
