The voting documents issued for the 3 June election, which will start being disseminated as of tomorrow, will be secure in themselves and will not be laminated, the electoral commission has announced.

“This document which is made of synthetic material is different from that used in former elections. Whereas previously the document consisted of a plastic laminated paper base, the new document is secure in itself without the need to be laminated,” the electoral commission said in a statement.
