SULAIMANI — Iraq’s Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) said on Sunday (September 26) that anyone caught voting on behalf of another person or votes twice will be fined between $200 and $900 and will be imprisoned for six months.

IHEC also called on people who have not collected their biometric voting cards to do so before October 3.

Earlier, the Commission said it had completed all preparations for the early parliamentary elections and that the security committee was also ready.

Iraqi voters will go to the polls on October 10.
