According to the CEC, in case of any error or inaccuracy, as well as in the absence in the voters’ list, citizens have the right to apply until December 29 inclusive to the relevant commission with an application (Form No. 1) and a copy of the passport. In addition, a citizen from November 19 to December 29 can submit an application electronically through the Voter’s Cabinet service on the aforementioned portal.
