On September 23, a regular meeting of the Central Election Commission took place. The members of the commission considered the issues of approving the form and text of the ballot paper for the election of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

According to the CEC, in accordance with Article 31 of the Electoral Code, the surname, name, patronymic of the candidate, indicating the year of birth and the political party that nominated him as a candidate, are entered on the ballot in alphabetical order.

Ballot papers are printed in the state language, as well as by the decision of the district election commission in the languages   used by the majority of the population of the respective district. Stencils can be made to fill in Braille ballots.

On the basis of Article 32 of the Electoral Code, precinct election commissions receive ballots from district election commissions no later than three days before voting day, including early ones.
