1. Persons desiring to vote must procure their ballots from a member of the election board.

2. They must then, without leaving the polling place, proceed to a compartment and prepare their ballots.

3. The ballots are prepared as follows:

Make a cross mark (X) with ink in the right margin of the ballot opposite the name of each person for whom you wish to vote.

Be careful that you do not mark the names of persons for whom you do not wish to vote.

Do not make any mark on the ballot, save as above directed, or the ballot will not be counted.

If you spoil a ballot return it to a member of the election board, and obtain from him a new ballot, you cannot get more than four in all; take this to a compartment and mark it properly.

4. Having marked the ballot, fold it so as to conceal the names and marks on the face, and to expose the names on the back.

5. Take it to the judge of the election before leaving the inclosure, and see it deposited in the box.

6. Immediately leave the railed inclosure.

7. If you wish to vote for any person whose name does not appear upon the ballot, write or insert his full name in the blank space on the ballot under the proper office you wish him to hold, and make a cross mark in the proper margin opposite the same.

8. Do not take any ballot from the polling place; you thereby forfeit the right to vote.

Said cards shall also contain sections twentysix, twenty-seven, twenty-eight, and twenty-nine of this act.
