Counting of votes shall start in the evening of the second election day or at 8 p.m. on the third day after the end of the elections if the voting is by mail. Votes shall be counted at an open meeting of the polling commission.
At the polling stations where ballots are accepted by mail the ballot boxes shall be sealed by the stamp of the relevant commission at an open meeting of the electoral commission on the evening of the second election day and on the following days after each commission meeting before the counting of votes is started, so that no ballots may be cast into the ballot boxes or envelopes removed; the commission members and authorized observers (Article 18) have the right to seal the ballot boxes by using their own stamps. The ballot boxes are to remain within polling stations under the supervision of the commission.
