An Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities, section 227 The template, containing a maximum number of 10 candidates, allows visually handicapped electors to mark their ballot paper without assistance. GENERAL DIRECTIVES TO THE DEPUTY RETURNING OFFICER Visually handicapped electors are not obliged to take the oath of an elector unable to vote without assistance where they use the template. PROCEDURES FOR THE HANDLING OF THE BALLOT PAPER - Detach the ballot paper from the pad and fold it in the appropriate manner. - Unfold it and place it in the template so that the first circle on the ballot paper is exactly under the first circle of the template. - Indicate to the elector the order in which the candidates appear on the ballot paper and the particulars entered under their names, where such is the case. - Offer assistance to the elector in walking to and back from the polling booth, in folding the marked ballot paper, in detaching the stub and in placing the ballot paper in the ballot box. - Where an elector prefers to act alone, ask him to fold his ballot paper again, after having marked it, by folding it in the same way you did when you folded it.
