“The Czech Statistical Office (CSO) is responsible for the tabulation of election results through 507 result-collection points at the regional and central levels. These points are staffed with employees from the CSO and access to them is strictly regulated. The CSO plans to train the staff as well as test the results transfer system prior to the election days. Special security measures are planned by the CSO to prevent potential cyber-attacks and ensure secure transfer of the results from polling stations. The preliminary results are published online, broken-down by polling station on the day following the second election day.”
