Article 47

47.-(1) The right to vote is exercised by personal appearance at the polling station. Before voting a voter must turn over his poll card to the keeper of the electoral register. Where a voter has omitted to bring his poll card a new one shall be written out. Upon request the voter shall give his name, address and date of birth. In case of doubt about the identity of a voter, the identity must be proven, if necessary through production of documentation thereof. Then, and after the keeper of the electoral register has ticked off the voter's name in the electoral register, the voter is handed a ballot paper.
