Maia Sandu promulgated the law on postal voting

The President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, promulgated the law on the partial implementation of postal voting. Thus, the citizens of the Republic of Moldova settled in the United States of America, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland will be able to vote by mail in the upcoming presidential elections and the republican constitutional referendum planned for October 20.

Citizens of the six states, who wish to exercise this right, must register on the website of the Central Electoral Commission 45 days before the election. The special ballot envelopes will be sent by diplomatic mail or regular postal services.

According to the authorities, postal voting will facilitate the participation of Moldovan citizens from the diaspora in elections, especially in countries where the distance between polling stations is large. The parliamentary opposition criticized the initiative saying, among other things, that it would favor voters in certain countries.
