Precinct commissions are going to be formed by February 6. Lists of citizens to participate in the referendum should be prepared by February 11. Stands with information materials on the issues of the referendum should appear at the polling stations until February 12.

The Central Election Commission also approved the regulations on the work of observers. During the early voting period, no more than three observers may be present at the polling station at a time.

“At the meetings of precinct commissions, in the voting premises, no more than five observers can be present at the same time. During the period of early voting, no more than three observers are allowed to enter the polling place at the same time,” the regulation says.
