Paragraph 36

During the parliamentary elections of 2000 and 2003, the State Election Commission (SEC) adopted “mandatory instructions” that voters who presented certain evidence (of Croatian citizenship, personal identity and residence abroad) would be permitted to vote at out-of-country voting sites without presenting a voting certificate.[38] While desirable in itself, on its face the waiver of the voter certificate requirement appeared to be contrary to the provisions of the Voter List Law.
