The CEC Approved the Special Voter Lists for Voters in Medical Institutions and Isolation (Quarantine, Self-Isolation)

The Central Election Commission (CEC) approved special voter lists. 4095 voters are on the special list for the second round of elections including persons in medical institutions and isolation (quarantine, self-isolation), as well as members of special groups who will serve voters in isolation and representatives of observer organizations who will monitor the process and simultaneously participate in polling. 

It is noteworthy that persons included in the special list are within the boundaries of the majoritarian district where they are registered.

On November 20, self-isolated voters will receive text messages that they will take part in the second round of elections by the mobile ballot box.

80 special polling stations set up for ensuring the participation of voters placed in medical institutions and isolation in elections will serve voters by 145 mobile ballot boxes. 

2 360 citizens called the CEC Call-Information Center, saying they are self-isolated and requesting a mobile ballot box. Of these 2 360 requests, 985 citizens met the criteria of mobile ballot box service and they were reallocated according to special precincts and addresses based on those majoritarian districts where the second round of parliamentary elections will be held. 

Self-isolated voters whose data is recorded in a database of the relevant agency and are within boundaries of the majoritarian district where they are registered could request the mobile ballot box service to participate in the second round. 

The CEC approved by ordinance special voter lists and ballots will be printed according to the number of mentioned voters, which will be distributed to all special precincts before polling day throughout Georgia. 

Self-isolated voters could call CEC Call-Information Center and request mobile ballot box service on November 15-17. The CEC Call-Information Center worked at its full capacity, and 30 operators recorded requests of citizens. 

The Election Administration ran an information campaign via social networks and media for voter awareness; the CEC sent text messages to 15 647 voters registered in the database of the relevant agency and called on them to request the mobile ballot box; while flayers on their participation in the elections were distributed to citizens placed in medical institutions and quarantine.
