Features on the Ballot Paper for Presidential and Parliamentary Elections
The Electoral Commission wishes to clarify that the ballot paper for use during the 2011
Presidential and Parliamentary Elections will bear the following features:
1. The first column will have the full names of candidates, in alphabetical order;
2. The second column will have a colour photograph of the candidate;
3. The third column will have the name of the party and symbol, or independent
4. The fourth column will have space where the voter will tick or place a thumbprint
as a mark of choice.
After marking the ballot paper, that is, in the box beside the candidate of his/her choice,
the voter will fold the ballot paper once, lengthwise, and then put it into the ballot box.
Polling officials will take voters who may need assistance, through these procedures
during the issuance of ballot papers.
