A new hybrid system will be used where remote votes will be combined with those counted at official polling stations, according to Wam.

The move is in line with the UAE’s digital transformation and will enforce the rule that each voter has only one vote. If they vote more than once, whether remotely or in the polling centre, only their last vote will be counted. The voter may not elect more than one candidate for the emirate to which they belongs.

It was also decided there will be no election centres in diplomatic missions.
