This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Votes marked by presiding officer

22(1)On the application of a voter—

(a)who is incapacitated by blindness or other disability from voting in the manner required by rule 21, or

(b)who declares orally an inability to read,

the presiding officer must, in the presence of any polling agents, cause the voter’s vote to be marked on a ballot paper in the manner directed by the voter and the ballot paper to be put into the ballot box.

(2)The name and number in the register of local government electors of every voter whose vote is marked in pursuance of this rule, and the reason why it is so marked, is to be entered on a list (the “marked votes list”) and in the case of a person voting as proxy for a voter, the number to be entered is the voter’s number.

(3)In the case of a person in respect of whom a notice has been issued under section 13B(3B) or (3D) of the 1983 Act, paragraph (2) applies as if for “in the register of local government electors of every voter” there were substituted “relating to every voter in respect of whom a notice has been issued under section 13B(3B) or (3D) of the 1983 Act”.
