"The Slovak nation is civil, decent, and will turn out for the vote, cast its ballots, and the results will be out the next morning," he said.

The Statistics Office, according to its chief, Ludmila Benkovicova, has provided 500 computers for polling stations. “Around 1,000 people who will process the election results have undergone training...” she said. The vote-counters were tested on March 3 and more tests are scheduled for March 10 and 17. TASR
