Paragraph 136

136. The prescribed method of voting (circling the ordinal number next to the list or candidate preferred)[102] would not be changed from existing law. This method can be confusing for illiterate voters, as well as other voters if suitable instructions are not included on the ballot-paper in the language of the voter. While the contestants in an election could conduct their own voter education activities on this point, many voters may not receive this information and some might find it difficult to recognise the numeral and to mark it correctly.
