Article 54

[Electors shall cast their votes in the order in which they present themselves.

An election board may decide that in the polling hall there shall not be any persons other than those involved in the holding of the elections, apart from the voters who are going to cast their votes. The election board may, in addition, limit the number of electors in the polling hall, if necessary to maintain order.

The election board must, in other respects, ensure that no prohibited election propaganda or election violations take place at the polling station or in the near vicinity, nor other activities which would interfere with or hinder the carrying out of the elections.]1)
