Recording of votes in the lists of voters

Once a vote has been cast, the chairman of the polling station committee or the person performing this function shall enter the comment: “Voted” in their own handwriting and on the right margin of the lists of voters corresponding to the line where the name of the voter appears.

However, the Tribunal can use electronic means of registration and verification of voters and voting if it determines them to be reliable and secure. It can then dispense with the use of the document to which this Article refers and the procedures inherent in its use.
