An elector who cannot vote at the polling station (handicapped persons or those prevented in some other way) shall inform the Polling Board whether he wishes to vote. The Polling Board shall, trough its member in charge of voting outside polling stations, enable such an elector to cast his vote, by post, in a manner ensuring directness and secrecy of voting.
After being informed of the elector’s inability to come to the polling station to cast his vote, the Polling Board shall, through its member in charge of voting by post, deliver to the elector the official envelope containing the stamped ballot paper, general electoral list, and a special envelope in which to put his marked ballot paper.
After an elector has voted, he shall place the ballot paper in the separate envelope which is then sealed and wax-stamped in his presence by the member of the Polling Board. The closed envelope containing the ballot paper is then placed into the official envelope which is sealed in the presence of the elector by the member of the Polling Board.
The member of the Polling Board in charge of voting outside polling stations shall deliver the official envelope to the Polling Board which shall then open it, circle the ordinal number before the elector’s name in the extract from the register of Electors, and place the closed envelope containing the ballot paper into the ballot box.
The manner of voting of the electors referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article is entered in the record.
More detailed instructions on the manner of voting referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article shall be prescribed by the Republican Election Commission.
