      1. All elections will be held in the Chamber.
      2. The agenda of a part-session sets down the schedules for the elections. One election takes place over two successive sittings on the same day.
      3. Assembly members (representatives and authorised substitutes) will not be called individually to vote.
      4. A voting register and a ballot box will be placed in the area behind the Chair. A member of the Table Office will be in attendance.
      5. Assembly members (representatives and authorised substitutes) shall present their identity badge to the member of the Table Office before signing the voting register and receiving a ballot paper and an envelope.
      6. By signing the register in place of a representative, a substitute shall prevent that representative from voting and from substituting for any other representative. A same Assembly member (representative or authorised substitute) can only vote once during a ballot.
      7. A member entitled to vote shall place the ballot paper in the envelope and put it in the ballot box.
      8. Any question of eligibility to vote shall be referred, if necessary, to the President, whose decision shall be final; no points of order may be raised.

      10. Access to the voting operations zone (around the voting booths and the table on which the ballot box and voting register are placed) shall be restricted to voting Assembly members, members of the Table Office and duly notified political groups’ observers.
      11. At the end of the scheduled time the President will ask whether any other member still has to vote and, when any such vote has been cast, the President shall announce that the voting is closed.
      12. Four tellers chosen by lot shall be responsible for checking the voting register, collating and counting the votes, assisted by the secretariat. These operations shall take place outside the Chamber immediately after the ballot is declared closed.
      13. The result will be announced by the President at the beginning of the following sitting, at the latest.
      14. The list of members who took part in the vote shall be published as an appendix to the report of debates of the particular sitting.
