Article 57

Organisation of Voting

(1) Voting shall be carried out in specially equipped places with desks for ballot paper issuance and voting booths or rooms for secret voting and ballot boxes. The latter must be placed in such a way as when approaching them the voters shall enter first the voting booths/rooms for secret voting. The premises shall have a sufficient number of voting booths/rooms so as to avoid the crowed.

(2) In order to maintain the order inside the polling station and avoid crowding, the Precinct Electoral Bureau shall establish a voter path, beginning with the entry to the tables where the ballot papers are handed out, then to the secret voting booths, and on to the ballot boxes.

(3) The polling station shall be furnished to allow the Precinct Electoral Bureau members and other persons authorised to observe the election procedures to continuously monitor all voting aspects, including voter identification, issuance of ballot papers and voters’ casting ballot papers into ballot boxes, ballot paper counting and preparation of protocols.

(4) The local public authority shall be responsible for providing the polling station with voting booths, ballot boxes, and with other necessary materials.

(5) The Precinct Electoral Bureau shall be responsible for the organisation of voting process, ensuring a secret suffrage, for premises equipment, and for the maintenance of due order within the polling stations.
