Methods to facilitate voting may include establishing polling sites in prisons.
- In some cases voting by prisoners is not foreseen in the law. However, when prisoners are allowed to vote, the observation of the voting process in prisons is often sensitive and problematic.
- Special voting procedures may include the use of mobile ballot boxes intended for the sick and elderly, voting in hospitals and prisons, early voting, voting by post, voting in embassies, and special provisions for military voting.
- Where applicable, special arrangements should be made to allow special categories of voters, such as voters living abroad and prisoners, to vote.
- In such cases where voting is permitted in military barracks, prisons and hospitals, the process can be open to abuse potentially undermining the principles of secrecy and freedom of choice.
