The right to vote ahead of schedule is reserved to those voters who have no opportunity to be in their district on the election day. Official confirmation of the reasons for the inability to come to the polling station on the election date is not required. The key election day is November 17. Also today, the CEC will announce the results of the elections to the Council of the Republic.
