Article 89

On the voting day, the time between 0800 and 1700 hours is the time for voting. However, voters still waiting in line to vote at 1700 hours are counted by the chairman and allowed to cast their votes in sequence.

(Annex: 6th Article of Law 3959, amended on 28 December 1993.) Beginning and closing hours of voting time can be determined by the Supreme Board of Elections throughout the country and in the necessary election districts, depending on seasonal and regional properties and transportation, provided that the time between the beginning and the end of voting is maintained and that the timings are announced not later than one week prior to the election day.
