Early voting for the presidential elections in the Republic of Uzbekistan will take place on October 14-20 this year.
This was reported by the CEC press service.
According to the Electoral Code, a voter who is unable to be at his place of residence on election day has the right to early voting.
Early voting begins ten days before the elections and ends three days before the elections. The time of early voting will be determined by the Central Election Commission, regional, district, city election commission. It will be communicated to voters and observers through the media.
“To carry out early voting, a voter, on the basis of an application indicating the reason for absence on election day (vacation, business trip, travel abroad, etc.), receives a ballot paper from the relevant precinct election commission. In the presence of at least two members of the relevant precinct commission, the voter signs for receiving the ballot paper in the voter list,” the document says.
The ballot paper is filled in by the voter in a specially equipped booth or room for secret ballot.
In addition, the voter makes a decision and leaves the filled-in ballot paper in a closed envelope, which is kept in the safe of the corresponding precinct election commission. At the place where the envelope is glued, the signatures of two members of the precinct commission are put, which are confirmed by the seal of the commission.
