What can you do?
Record your statement
You can participate in the mobilization at your polling station to ask to record your will through the following statement:
The / * the undersigned / * [name and surname] wishes to be recorded in the minutes as the subdivision into lists, registers by gender or by sex is discriminatory and harmful towards trans* people, of fluid gender, non-binary , or of all the identities that do not recognize themselves in the man-woman dichotomy and that are therefore not considered and respected in their own self-determination.
Voting procedures at polling stations with files, lists or registers divided into “men and women”, as required by Article 5 of Presidential Decree No. 223 of March 20, 1967, force transgender and non-binary people to come out about their own privacy and the disclosure of sensitive data that can expose them to the possibility of becoming a target of hostility, discrimination, or violence by virtue of their gender identity.

Here are our guidelines to promote inclusion and respect for trans people:
Avoid separate files
Avoid signs at the banquet with the indication “men” and “women” in correspondence with the registers (better to use an alphabetical subdivision)
Make the problem known to all staff and welcome people who want to leave their statement to be recorded in the minutes
