Section 171

(1) If the number of members participating in the work of a polling station commission – or, in the case of a settlement with a single polling district, the local election commission – is less than five, the head of the local election office shall supplement the commission using the alternate members. If the commission can not be supplemented in this manner, the territorial election office shall order alternate members of another settlement's polling station commission to join the commission.
(2) If the number of polling station commission members present at the polling station falls below three on the day of voting, or voting becomes impossible due to an event that endangers the freedom or the secrecy of the voting or threatens to make conducting the voting impossible, the polling station commission members present shall immediately suspend voting, seal the ballot boxes and documents and immediately inform the head of the local election office about the suspension with a view to ensuring the legal continuation of the voting.
