The intention of a voter to vote outside the voting room should be confirmed again by a written application submitted to the Precinct Election Commission, in the presence of no less than 2 members of the Precinct Election Commission who represent various political parties and non-partisans and observers. If a voter did not make a written request for a mobile ballot box, he/ she should write an application in the presence of Precinct Election Commission members. The voter shall record the receipt of his/her ballot paper in the application and verify this with his/her signature.

After the mobile ballot box is returned by the Precinct Election Commission members to the polling station, its slit shall be closed and it shall not be opened until vote counting commences.
