Electronic voting and counting in Vora

We have not received any reports on issues related to the electronic voting system. The verifications on site carried out by the CEC also showed that the process went smoothly. This is also based on the Commission members’ opinion and also that of Vora voters.

Electronic identification went smoothly

75% of VCs were opened at 07.00.

25% of VCs (most of them opened) by 7.30.

Voting did not take place in 3 voting centers in CEAZ no. 2, Shkodra municipality, No. 0132, VC. No. 0133 and VC. No. 0092.

Information reported by Mrs. Pelinku:

Electronic Voter Identification Device was used in 933 VCs out of a total of 941 VCs, while one VC was special. In 8 VC, the electronic identification of voters not applied, as:

  1. 3 VCs were not open for the voting (2 VCs in Shkodër);
  2. in 3 VCs the process was done manually
  3. in 2 VCs the operator of the device resigned at the voting day

Out of 933 polling stations where the PEI device was applied, in only 18 of them was the device replaced. Despite the short time frame available, the CEC successfully implemented this technology even in local by-elections.
