Romania – Handling of electoral mail

28 November, 2016

Further to International Bureau Circular 175 of 7 November 2016, the designated operator of Romania, Compania Nationala Posta Romana S.A., asks us to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries that Romanian citizens living overseas may cast their ballots by mail for the general elections to be held in Romania on 11 December 2016.

All documents were sent to Romanian voters living overseas by registered mail/EMS as separate dispatches between 4 and 11 November 2016, marked "ELECTORAL DISPATCH". Compania Nationala Posta Romana S.A. provided the respective postal operators with pre-alert dispatch information each time it forwarded these electoral dispatches.

Compania Nationala Posta Romana S.A. requests all designated operators to ensure the immediate distribution of electoral mail to Romanian voters living overseas, to accept IBRS envelopes free of charge, and to forward the latter to Romania as soon as possible.

Compania Nationala Posta Romana S.A. thanks all member countries and their designated operators for their cooperation.
