GERB is to file a project for changes in the Electoral Code that would allow for mixed voting with paper ballots and machines. This was announced at a briefing in parliament by Radomir Cholakov from the party.

The party also say that voting devices and software should be state-owned. It is proposed that in polling stations abroad outside the EU, the technicians servicing the machine vote should be Bulgarian citizens, while in the EU they must speak Bulgarian.

The draft also calls for counting the control receipts from machine voting in all stations and for comparing the data from the machine protocols with those in handwritten protocols after counting of the receipts.
