On the occurrence of such circumstances that hinder the commencement or continuation of voting, the ward election commission can postpone the opening of the poll at later hour or prolong the term of the poll. The total hours of voting (section 26), however, must not be shortened in result of this measure. The ward election commission shall notify the electors of such measure in an ordinary manner in its area. If the voting has been interrupted, the ward election commission shall seal the election documents, ballot box and portable ballot box. Upon the renewed opening of the poll, the chief of the ward election commission shall, at the presence of other members of the ward election commission, check that the seals have not been violated and note it in the minutes on voting.
