In order to get this card, these voters can apply to the Con.EC from 45 days till 25 days prior to the voting day, i.e. since August 31 up to September 2 and to the PEC from 24 days till 3 days prior to the voting day, i.e. since September 21 up to October 12. it shall be prohibited to provide a voter with several de-registration cards. De-registration card shall be provided to the voter based on the voter’s applications or his/her authorized representative based on the powers of attorney approved in the notary order.
