Things voters should know about the paper ballots

The UNDP Lebanese Election Assistance Program aims to make the elections in Lebanon transparent and inclusive. It recently shared an informational video that shows what voters need to know about the paper ballots.

What you need to know:

  • You can vote only for one list.
  • You can vote for a whole list or one candidate within a list.
  • You can vote for a whole list and tick a preferential vote within that list.
  • If you voted for a list and ticked a preferential vote within another list, your vote for the list will count.

Your vote will not count if:

  • If you did not vote for a list or a candidate.
  • If you voted for many lists or to candidates that belong to different lists.
  • If you draw symbols or write words on the ballot.
