Moment of voting
1. Voting shall be secret.
2. Electors may only vote in the ward and at the polling bureau allotted to them, except as provided in subsection 1 of Section 79. They shall proceed to the bureau one by one¸ after having gone, if they so wish, into the booth standing in the same room, at a place between the entrance and the bureau, to enable them to choose the ballot paper and put it into the apposite envelope.
3. Each elector shall give his name and surname to the President. Members of the Bureau and polling controllers shall check by means of the electoral register lists or of the relevant certificate, the elector’s right to vote, as well as his identity, which shall be certified according to Section 85 above. The elector shall thereupon personally hand to the presiding officer his voting envelope or envelopes duly closed. The presiding officer, holding said envelope or envelopes in full sight of the public all the time, shall read out the elector’s name, say the word “..votes” (“...vota”) and give the envelope or envelopes back to the voter, who is to put them in the corresponding box or boxes.
4. Members of the Bureau and also polling controllers, if they so wish, shall enter, each on his own numbered list, the name and surname of voters in the order in which they have cast their vote, and state the number allocated to them in the electoral registration lists or, as the case may be, in the special registration certificate produced. There shall be a numbered list for each House of Spanish Parliament and, as the case may be, for the Legislative Assemblies of Self-Governing Communities, local government assemblies or the European Parliament. Every elector has the right to verify if his name and surname have been duly entered in the voters’ list to be drawn up by the Bureau for each box.
