(3) The head of the parliamentary single-member constituency election office shall, no later than the sixth day after the day of voting in Hungary, hand over to the chairman of the polling station commission defined in (1) the ballot box and the package referred to in Section 287 (1).

(4) The polling station commission as defined in (1) shall mix – without opening them – the envelopes in the packages as specified in Section 287 (1) with the envelopes that contain the votes cast at the polling district, and carry out without delay the tasks set for the polling station commission in Chapter XI.
