Polling stations during the vote in the referendum will be open from 7:30 till 21:00. Dutch citizens who have reached the age of 18 years may cast their opinion in the referendum.
One should come to the polling station with the special invitation (stempas) and ID document. Staff of the polling station will give out a ballot paper and a red pencil.
The question in the referendum reads as follows: “Are you for or against the ratification of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine?”. One should put a red mark in front of “yes” or “no” column.
Spoilt ballot papers will be considered invalid. Only one person must be located in the voting booth while casting a vote. Only people with disabilities may receive assistance while voting. After the vote is cast, a ballot paper must be placed into a ballot box.
Results of the referendum will be recognized if at least 30% of the Dutch (around 3,8 million people) turn up to cast their opinions.
