The Deputy Returning Officer and Poll Clerk confirm each elector’s name and address.
The Poll Clerk finds the elector in, or adds the elector to, the Poll Book. The ballot counterfoil is numbered with the elector’s sequence number from the Poll Book. The Deputy Returning Officer initials the back of the ballot.
The Deputy Returning Officer provides the ballot to the elector, stating that the elector should mark the ballot by placing an “X” in the circle opposite the name of the selected candidate.
The elector heads behind a voting screen and marks the ballot. The elector then returns to the Deputy Returning Officer.
The Deputy Returning Officer checks the ballot for their initials, without unfolding it, to ensure it is the same ballot as was provided to the elector.
The ballot counterfoil is then removed, and the ballot is returned to the elector, to put inside of the ballot box.
The Poll Clerk, using the sequence number on the counterfoil, marks the Poll Book to show that you have cast your ballot.
The counterfoil is destroyed and the next elector is taken.
