THE AUSTRALIAN BALLOT.
How to Prepare It According to Law
Voters Should Caret ally Read
Secretary of State Lesueur in re
sponse to numerous inquiries gives
out the following:
Under the Australian Ballot Law
it is made the duty of the County
Clerks and the Election Commission
ers to prepare and furnish to the voters
the ballots which they are to deposit
in the boxes on election day. No
others can be used. These ballots are
large sheets of white paper upon which
must oe printed, in seperate groups,
the tickets of various parties, or such
tickets as may be nominated bv elec
tors who in numbers do not constitute
Four constitutional amendments are
to be voted on. The character of
each amendment will, under the law,
be designated on the ballot The
voter, in order to have his vote count
ed upon these amendments, musterase.
as the case may be. the words "ves"
or ''no" to conform the ballot to the
vote he desires to cast on the propo
sition voted tin.
On the election day each qualified
voter shall be entitled to enter the
polling place and to receive from the
judges of election one ballot, upon
wnicn snail nave been placed the mi
tials of two of the judges of election
and no other writing shall be permit
ted upon the back of the ballot except
the number of the ballot. The voter
then retires to a booth alone, remain
ing not more than five minutes, to
prepare his ballot In doing this he
should particularly remember that he
must vote upon one of the groups or
tickets. In other words, he must, by
drawing one or two lines through
them from top to bottom, erase all the
groups except one, and if he desires
to vote for other persons who are in
other groups he must do so by cross
ing out names and substituting others
for them in writing under the erasures
all upon one ofthegroupsor tickets.
He cannot, for instance, vote for
electors on one ticket and State and
county officers on another ticket. He
must do all his voting upon one ticket,
under one head. If he undertakes to
vote for some names by leaving them
unmarked upon one group and other
names in a similar way upon another
group his ballot must under the law
be rejected as illegal.
After preparing his ballot the voter
must fold the same so that the face
thereof shall be concealed and so that
the initial of the judges previously
placed upon the back of the ballot
may be seen. He must then deposit
his v te and forthwith leave the poll
Any erasures the voter desires to
make on the ticket he wishes to vote
should be by horizontal and not per
pendicular lines, as the law says
a partial erasure ot a group by
ines lengthwise of the column, or in
any other manner than by the erasure
of a name to substitute another to be
taken as a rejecttion of the whole
ir a voter shall by accident or mis
take spoil his ballot he may return
the spoiled ballot to the judges of
election and receive another in place
Any voter who declares under bath
to the judges of election that he can
not read or write, or that by reason
of physical disability he is unable to
mark his ballot, may declare his
choice of candidates to the judges
havinsr charge of the ballots, who, in
the presence of the voter, without
leaving their respective positions,
shall prepare the ballot for votinsr
according to his instructions.
Erase all the groups except the one
upon which you desire to vote.
On constitutional amendments erase
the words "Yes" or "No" according
to how you desire to vote.
Make no perpendicular lines on tne
ticket which you desire to vote.
