– In total, the National Electoral Committee registered 27 committees. PKW registers party committees, party coalitions and electoral committees of voters who want to submit candidates in more than one district – said judge Wojciech Hermeliński, chairman of NEC on the press briefing.

In the whole country, commissioners registered around 9,000. local committees.

– We have chosen voting cards. It will be in the form of a leaf, but not as it was before the regulation was amended, "said Hermeliński.


– These cards have been significantly reduced due to the fact that the electoral law has changed the principle of the number of candidates. As soon as you could report twice as much as there were chairs. Now you can submit as many candidates as there are places plus two. The cards are getting smaller, they have a size of A4 to A2 – he added.

A votive card in the form of a book is only issued in places where more than 20 committees are present.

The discussion about the form and appearance of the cards has taken place since the last local elections.

In 2014 no less than 17 percent in the regional municipal elections. votes were invalid (about 12 percent during the 2010 and 2006 elections). One of the reasons for the increase in the number of invalid votes was the rendering of the book and the vague instructions about voting.
