Manual counting will be conducted in two sub commissions of each electoral district
The General Election Commission
of Mongolia held a meeting regarding voting ballots on June 26, 2012, where the Commission has ratified the 127th resolution. Accordingly, all voting sheets that were loaded into the vote counting machine will be accounted as valid (accepted sheets). Also, any other marks, other than the circles that apply to a candidate, party or coalition, will not be submitted as a vote.
Regarding the ratification of this resolution, an associate article of the “Manual of admitting, counting and recapitulating citizens’ votes at electoral commission” ratified by the 60th resolution of May 15, 2012, has now been annulled. (In other words, the following article has been annulled: “After the electoral commission introduces the recapitulating report printed out from the vote counting machine at their meeting, the voting sheets extracted from the machine will be sorted into valid and non-valid categories. Any mark that has been marked elsewhere than the circle in front of the candidate, party or coalition will be accounted as a different marking from the instruction that is written on the voting sheet.”)
Also, with the purpose to implement the 23.4.5 index of the 23rd article of the law on Automated Election System, it was decided to make the control count or manual counting of the ballots and double check if the results match with the machine counted ones, after the resolution is released by authorities of the certain electoral sub commission. This process will be based on the means of random drawing in two electoral sub commissions from each State Great Khural (Parliament) electoral district. The control count will be conducted under apparent surveillance of the control commission and observers
, established according to the 23.1 and 23.2 index of the 23rd article of the law on Automated Election System, where electoral sub commissions were obliged with introducing the results.
