“All polling stations will be equipped with electronic vote-counting equipment for scanning and counting ballots. Results are corroborated through a manual vote count in up to 50 per cent of polling stations, which are randomly selected. In 2019, the General Intelligence Agency and GEC conducted an examination of the counting equipment, which concluded that the machines could be reused in the 2020 parliamentary and local elections.”


In 2015, Mongolia for the first time used SMS voting for a referendum, which can be read more about here.
