CEC clarifies: one step, but made to order

OK, I think I've finally sorted through the mess of what the CEC really said.

You have to have a one step voting system setup -- which means you have two tables next to each other, one for legislative ballots and one for referendum ballots. But, if a citizen opted to, they could only take half of the ballots the first time (either set is fine, apparently), go cast their ballot and then come back in line to pick up their other ballots, as long as they don't leave the voting building.

To be honest, it seems to me to be a perfectly acceptable solution because it's exactly what you would get with any one step set-up, even if those who wish to boycott the referendums will have a slightly easier time. And it's a hell of a lot better than a total mess of an election procedure.
