Parliamentary elections 2019. How to fill in the ballot paper? How did you choose the right vote?
After submitting an ID card and signing the voter list, the voter will receive two ballots – one will be used to vote in the Senate and the other to vote in the Senate.
For elections to The Sejm you can only vote for one candidate list (the lists will be marked with consecutive numbers). To do this, place the "X" on the ballot box (at least two intersecting lines within the box) in the box to the left, next to the candidate name chosen by us from the list. If a voter votes for two names from a list, the candidate shall be given a higher vote on the list.
Voting will be considered invalid if we vote for candidates whose names appear on more than one list. The invalidity of the voting is also confirmed if the voter puts a mark, except for two crossed lines in the ballot box or gives an "empty" card (no vote for any candidate). It is worth remembering that the voting cards should bear the stamp of the electoral commission in the area.
The election to The Senate we can choose only one name from the candidates who are applying for a place in a given field (we do this by placing an "X" in the box to the left). Voting will be considered invalid if the mark appears with multiple candidates, and also if the voter placed a different mark on the two intersecting lines or returned an "empty" card.
