To all electors, polling station workers, and concerned bodies! As it is known, the voting for the 6th National Election is underway. However,

1. Due to some places where the voting process was delayed

2. Due to the presence of delays in the distribution of materials during the voting process and

3. Due to the presence of voters still waiting in long queues.

The Board announces that the voting process is extended to 9:00 pm. Accordingly, we urge polling station workers to accommodate any voter who arrives before 9p.m. However, if the voters in the register have all voted and there is no one waiting in line, polling station workers can close the polling station and start counting at the stations. Citizens who have experienced problems during the voting process can call 778 toll-free number.
