Voting polls in the presidential elections of the Republic of Croatia were closed at 7pm, but voting continued in Mostar shortly thereafter.
Twenty voters who found themselves at the polling station or registering had the right to use their vote even after the polling station closed.
The guarantor consul in Mostar, Jadranka Modric, pointed out that all polling stations were closed at 7 pm.
“Those who found themselves at the polls at that time have the right to stay and use their vote. This rule applies equally to all polling stations,” Modric explained.
According to this rule, the Petar Bakula Primary School in Mostar, which opened 19 polling stations from 7am to 7pm, was closed at 7pm according to the regulation. About 20 voters who happened to be in the building will still use their vote.
