The CEC refers the violating voters to the Attorney General

Saturday, April 8, 2006

Today, the CEC referred to the attorney general a list of 97 voters who committed an electoral crime by using their right to vote more than once in the PLC elections which were held on January 25, 2006.

Article 102 of elections law No. 9 of 2005 stipulates that any person who uses his right to vote more than once has committed an electoral crime and shall-upon indictment- be punished with either imprisonment for no less than six months or payment of a fine that doesn’t exceed one thousand USD or both.

All violations were centered in Jerusalem electoral district due to the lack of a voters list for this district. The Israeli authorities prevented the registration of voters in the city. The CEC opened polling centers in Jerusalem suburbs for Jerusalem voters without a voters list. Jerusalem voters were able to exercise their right to vote after registering their personal information. The polling process in Jerusalem went according to the same procedures applicable in the rest of the electoral districts.

Following the data entry process for the voters' lists, it turned out that some voters voted more than once in the polling centers which the CEC opened in Jerusalem Suburbs.
