Article 57
 

Once a voter has received the ballot presented to him/her by the chairman, the voter shall take the ballot into the polling booth [where the elector alone may be]1) and to the table located there. On the table there must be at least two normal, dark pencils, which the election board shall provide and make sure to have sufficiently well sharpened.

There shall also be a card the same size as the ballot, marked with raised list letters and in Braille, with a hole in front of each letter and with a slot underneath so that blind persons can [insert their ballot and] place a cross, through this hole, in front of the list which is to receive their vote and can thus vote privately and without assistance.
