How To Vote

When  you go to your voting location you should bring along your voter registration card. Once the election official has processed your documentation they will present you with your ballot.

Your ballot contains the list of candidates running for election in your electoral district. To vote for a candidate you mark your ballot in secret behind a voting privacy screen. To mark your ballot all you need to do is thumbprint  beside the name of the candidate you would like to vote for. Then, return to the election official and place your ballot in the ballot box.
