This is a vital step in ensuring that the election materials are not tampered with, stolen, or destroyed.
The timely distribution of sensitive election materials is crucial to the success of the electoral process. It ensures that materials are delivered to polling units in good time and that electoral officers have enough time to prepare for the election.
It also reduces the risk of delays or disruption to the electoral process on the day of the election.
