Paragraph 74

According to the Code of Good Practice in Electoral Matters, "Where servicemen cannot return home on polling day, they should preferably be registered at polling stations near their barracks. Details of the servicemen concerned are sent by the local command to the municipal authorities who then enter the names in the electoral list. The one exception to this rule is when the barracks are too far from the nearest polling station. Within the military units, special commissions should be set up to supervise the pre-election period, in order to prevent the risk of superior officers’ imposing or ordering certain political choices. Where servicemen are responsible for the security of a polling station, they may be allowed to cast their vote there, but for their constituency of residence."
