The Central Election Commission says eligible voters should refrain from wearing political clothing and adhere to pandemic prevention measures when voting. The commission is referring to the local election that will take place on Saturday. 

The commision says there can be no political rallying on the day of the election. Eligible voters should not wear merchandise, carry flags or accessories affiliated with a political party or candidate. 

Meanwhile, the commission says voters should follow COVID-19 regulations and wear a mask at the polls. It reminds voters masks should also not contain political slogans, symbols, or any specific candidate endorsement. 

The commission says voters are also not allowed to wear any items related to the referendum, including stickers, symbols, or other merchandise. On Saturday, voters will also have to vote on a referendum on lowering the voting age from 20 to 18.

The commission says voters should only need to bring their national ID, stamp, and voting notice to the voting booths.
