Our news team inquired from the PAFFREL organization on how to vote during the Northern, North Western and Central provincial council elections.
Executive director of the PAFFREL organization Rohana Hettiarachchi stated that voters should first place their vote for a party of their choice and then place their preferential vote for a candidate of their choice.
Speaking further he stated that while voters can place one preferential vote each for up to 3 candidates, voters cannot cast all 3 votes for the same candidate.
