In restricted proportional elections a voter casts a vote by marking with the pencil a cross on the ballot in front of the letter of the list which he/she chooses from among those available.

If the voter wishes to change the order of names on the list chosen, he/she may place the number 1 before the name which he/she desires to rank first, the number 2 before the name to be ranked second, the number 3 before the name to be ranked third, etc. to the extent which the list is to be altered.

If a voter wishes to reject a candidate on the list chosen he/she may draw a line through the candidate's name.
