The Polling Board shall check the ballot box in the presence of the elector who is first to come to the polling station. The result of this control is entered into the control slip which shall be signed by both the members of the Polling Board, and the first elector.
The control slip is placed in the ballot box which is then sealed in the presence of the first elector, and this is entered into the Record of the Work of the Polling Board.
Upon opening of the ballot box, it shall first be checked whether it contains a control slip. If the ballot box does not contain the control slip, the Polling Board shall be dissolved, a new one appointed, and voting at that polling station shall be repeated.
The form of the control slip is prescribed by the Republican Election Commission.
