Electronic voting, counting or assessment methods 

When electronic methods are used for voting, counting or assessment, the respective regulations must ensure the preservation of voting secrecy and the security and transparency of the process, and therefore political parties with registered candidacies can also accredit supervisors in the capacity of technical experts to the polling station committee and the TSE.

If printed ballot papers are used, they must be marked with the distinctive symbol ordered by the TSE; they shall have this uniform pattern in accordance with the positions to be filled and shall be produced on non-transparent paper. Nevertheless, ballot papers or special media can be designed for citizens with physical disabilities that prevent them from using the usual ones.
