Article 91

(1st Article of Law 2234, amended on 17 May 1979.) A voter admitted by the committee proves his/her identity by presenting his/her identification certificate to the chairman.

The chairman finds the voter's name in the ballot-box voter list and provides him/her one of the joint ballots on the table; before directing the voter to one of the voting booths in case there are more than one voting booths in the ballot-box area, the voter is informed about the joint ballot and how to fold and seal it into an envelope or fold envelopes according to the type of voting, and exit as soon as he/she finishes.

The voter goes directly to the voting booth after receiving the joint ballot, only to exit the voting booth as he votes.

The joint ballot is retained from the voter who does not go into or vote in the voting booth.
