(1) Measures must be taken to ensure that the voter cannot be observed while marking his or her ballot paper and placing it in the envelope. Ballot boxes used for the reception of the envelopes must ensure the preservation of the secrecy of the ballot.
(2) A voter who is illiterate or who due to a physical handicap is prevented from marking the ballot paper, from placing it in the envelope, from handing the envelope over to the Electoral Officer or from placing it into the ballot box himself or herself may be aided by an-other person.
