As soon as constituencies have been delimited by the Delimitation Commission, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) divides each constituency into polling districts in consultation with and involvement of stakeholders comprising traditional leadership, local authorities, civil society and the general public. This exercise is carried out in collaboration with these primary stakeholders to provide accessibility of polling areas to the voting public. Following the determination of polling districts, polling stations are identified in each district.
The names of established polling districts and identified polling stations are published in the Gazette and such other manner as the IEC may consider appropriate.
The IEC may from time to time add to the number of polling stations established in any polling district or vary a situation within a polling district of any polling station established therein.
Polling stations outside the country are established at all Botswana Embassies and consular missions and at other such places the IEC may consider necessary.
