    Postal tallies

    The feedback from the District Collectors that it is advisable to hold the elections in 2 stages given the COVID-19 scenario is most likely to be presented prior to the ECI group. This time, voters above 80 and individuals with impairments will be released postal ballots.

    Additionally, a minimum of 15,000 auxiliary polling stations will need to be established as each polling station will accommodate just a maximum of 1,000 citizens.

    This will also require extra workforce in regards to both polling authorities and security workers.
