(1) declare before the panel members that he is the elector whose name appears on the list of electors and is entitled to be entered on the list in respect of the address appearing opposite his name ;
(2) sign the sworn statement provided for that purpose in the register kept by the panel members ;
(3) show his face and meet either of the following conditions :
(a) produce at least two documents providing evidence of his name, including one that bears his photograph, or failing that, at least two documents which together provide evidence of his name and date of birth and of the address appearing on the list opposite his name or his domiciliary address ; or
(b) be accompanied by a person who
i. identifies himself in accordance with the first paragraph of section 215 ;

iv. produces a document referred to in the third paragraph of section 215 that bears his photograph ; and
v. signs a sworn statement provided for that purpose in the register kept by the panel members, which statement shall indicate his name, date of birth and address.
However, a document not bearing a photograph may be produced by a person accompanying an elector if that person resides in a location listed in Schedule I to the Regulation respecting forms and statements of fees under the Health Insurance Act (R.R.Q., 1981, chapter A-29, r.2) or in a locality referred to in section 7.8 of the Regulation respecting licences, made by Order in Council 1421-91 (1991, G.O. 2, 4146), is accompanying an elector who is entitled to vote in such a location or locality and meets the requirements determined by a regulation made under section 335.2 of the Election Act.
Despite subparagraphs 2 and 3 of the first paragraph, an elector who is unable to show his face for reasons of physical health that are considered valid by the chief electoral officer or any person designated by the chief electoral officer for that purpose may obtain an authorization allowing him to be identified without showing his face, provided he first signs the sworn statement provided for that purpose in the presence of the members of the verification panel.
The chairman of the verification panel shall give the elector the authorization described in the third paragraph.
