March 19 Voting begins across Lebanon at 7 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. Elections last for one day and are always held on a Sunday.Voting by expatriates will take place before the general vote in Lebanon and these votes will be counted in the district in which voters are registered, as is the case with local voters.A preferential vote cast for the candidate on a list other than the one the voter selected will not be counted.March 1 When a ballot is cast, if a vote has been made for a list but no preferential candidate, then the vote for the list is counted but not for any individual. Ballots of people who do not attend to vote will not be considered as blank ballots and therefore will not contribute to the threshold number.Voters then have to select a preferential vote for one of the candidates on that list.Feb. 26 With the introduction of official, pre-printed ballots for the first time, all eligible lists of registered candidates will be compiled in a booklet. This means voters no longer need to bring or write their own list of candidates to cast their ballot, and parties will not hand out lists near polling stations.
