Distribution of voting cards has begun on Saturday and they have time until 18th October (the day of voting) to collect their cards. Since this distribution of cards, some have argued that in the opposition areas the members of National Electoral Commission (CENI) had voluntarily left people off the list. In their defense, Mamadou Baldé, technical assistant of the CENI (independent national electoral commission) said that many of them had incomplete information.

In total over 5 million voting cards should be handed out by the CENI.
