Article 64

If a voter allows others to see what is marked on a ballot, that ballot is invalid and may not be placed in the ballot box. If a voter does this by accident, or places a voting mark wrongly on a ballot or makes marks on the ballot inadvertently, he/she is entitled to receive a new ballot. The voter must in such case return the previous ballot to the election board.

Once a voter has placed a ballot in the ballot box, he/she shall leave the polling hall.
