More than 45 000 young people will be able to participate in the upcoming October 28 election for the first time. They will receive along with voter cards, the letters from the CEC Chairperson, highlighting the importance of elections and their participation in it. With reference to voter information card, if voter fails to receive the card by October 8, he/she may contact the CEC Call Center or verify in advance his/her data through a variety of electronic services offered by the CEC.
