By over 4,000 people cast their ballots at the polling stations established in Montreuil in France and Frankfurt am Main in Germany by 5pm, the Central Election Commission has said. Crowds also appeared at other polling stations. More than 3,000 voters already marked their ballots at polling stations in London and Northampton in the UK, in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich in Germany, in Parma, Bologna, Padova, Verona, Brescia, Milan and Treviso in Italy, and in France’s Paris and Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, IPN reports.
Under the legislation, additional ballots cannot be printed and distributed. As the ballots are marked according to the number of the polling station, it is not possible to transfer these from one polling station to another.
The voters are urged to go to the less crowded polling stations.
