1. During voting, every citizen shall receive one ballot (or ballots, if several elections are taking place concurrently) and one ballot envelope (or envelopes, if several elections are taking place concurrently).
2. Immediately after getting registered, the voter shall approach the commission member responsible for giving out ballots and ballot envelopes. The commission member shall tear the stub of the ballot (or ballots, if several elections are taking place concurrently) and give the bottom part of the ballot, together with a ballot envelope, to the voter, who shall proceed to the voting booth to vote.
The commission member responsible for giving out ballots and ballot envelopes shall put the ballot stubs in sequence, in accordance with procedures established by the Central Electoral Commission, and give them to the Precinct Electoral Commission Chairman. The latter shall place them in separate stacks in the fireproof safe box.
3. The voter shall mark the ballot in the privacy of a voting booth.
4. Citizens, who are unable to mark the ballots on their own, shall have the right to invite another person (but never a proxy) into the voting booth with them, after notifying the Commission Chairman. The same person shall have the right to assist only one person who is unable to mark the ballot on his/her own. Except for this case, the presence of another person in the voting booth, when a voter is marking the ballot, shall be prohibited.
5. If the voter believes that he or she has marked the ballot incorrectly, he or she may turn to the commission chairman or, in his/her absence, the deputy chairman, and ask for a new ballot. Upon receiving instructions from the commission chairman or, in his absence, the deputy chairman, the appropriate commission member shall give out a new ballot, make an appropriate note in the voter list, next to the first and last name of that voter.
The incorrectly marked (damaged) ballot shall be cancelled immediately, and an appropriate protocol shall be made to that effect.
6. Citizens in detention or under arrest shall vote in accordance with requirements of this Article, whereas military servicemen shall vote in accordance with the requirements of Articles 54-56 of this Code.
