In particular, the legal basis of the procedures used for out-of-country voting (OCV) has remained complex, and the requirements were not well understood by voters and were potentially subject to non-uniform application. The main issue in this regard concerned which voters could cast their ballots at OCV sites without having to present a special certificate, which must be obtained from the relevant local officials.
(Under the Parliamentary Election Law, Croatian citizens who are permanent residents abroad vote in a special constituency, number 11. Others, who are temporarily abroad, may cast their ballots in one of the ten regular geographical constituencies inside Croatia, or – if they are members of recognized national minority groups – in the special constituency for minorities, number 12. Voters temporarily located abroad are required to obtain a voting certificate.)
