Republic of San Marino, ODIHR Needs Assessment Report, Early Parliamentary Elections of 8 December 2019, accessed 15 December 2019

“The elections will be administered by the Election Commission (EC) together with 51 Polling Station Offices (PSOs) and 16 Counting Offices (COs). […] The EC is a permanent 11-member body, comprising seven members appointed by the parliament and one representative each from the Civil Registry, Single Court, and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Internal Affairs. The EC, chaired by the Minister of Internal Affairs, serves a five-year term, and is formed anew by each incoming parliament. The EC compiles voter lists, registers candidate lists, appoints PSOs, and enforces campaign regulations. The State Election Office (SEO), instituted at the Civil Registry, is represented within the EC and assists with administrative and operational duties, including the training of PSO staff and the preparation of ballot papers and other election materials.”
