Recommendation:
The issues related to voter lists must be resolved fundamentally, once and for all. In particular, it is necessary to review the mechanism of forming the voter register, separating citizens who are living in Armenia and those who are living abroad. As an alternative to this, we consider it appropriate to introduce a mechanism of clearing the lists through a preregistration system, prescribed by the RA law of June 30 2016 “On Making Amendments and Additions to the Electoral Code of the Republic of Armenia”, but the law was never implemented, with the excuse of time constraints and technical difficulties given
