Article 71

(1) The electoral authority shall only decide on the admissibility of casting the ballot if the identity of the voter ready to cast the ballot appears to be doubtful. The members of the electoral authority and the election witnesses and, if applicable, voters being present in the polling station, can only object against the admissibility of casting the ballot for this reason as long as the person, whose right to vote is doubted, has not cast the ballot.

(2) The decision of the electoral authority shall be made before continuing the act of voting. It shall be final.
