Accreditation and voting are two different processes and there shall be separate periods for both.
Accreditation shall begin at 8am and end at 1pm provided that all voters who are on the queue by 1pm shall be accredited. It is during the accreditation period that the card readers will be used. Once accreditation has been successfully completed, the Assistant Presiding Officer (APO) shall ask the voter to return to the polling unit when voting is to start.
Voting shall commence at 1.30pm or whenever accreditation ends.
