HOW to mark your ballot paper?

Every candidate standing for office will be randomly assigned a three-digit number one month before the election.

According to the Elections Office, the ballot paper will contain every candidate's number.

All voting booths around the country will have a poster that clearly displays each candidate's number alongside his/her name and photograph. The voters, in order to vote, has to circle, cross or tick his/her number on the ballot paper.

According to the elections office,Voters are not allowed to bring any sample ballot paper, card of instructions on how to vote into the polling station.

According to the Elections Office, the votes will be counted on location.

The presiding officer for the polling station will be in charge of the count which will take place in view of election observers, agents from the political parties and the media.

Agents present have the right to request a recount — written requests must be submitted with reasons for the request.

Once the presiding officer is satisfied the procedures have been complied with, the results from the polling station will be posted and securely delivered to the Elections Supervisor.

The supervisor will then prepare the national results tally, which will record the total number votes cast for each candidate and the total number of votes for each party.

This, the Elections Office says, will happen in the presence of candidates, polling agents, observers and the media representatives and the tally will also be displayed to the public as it is progressively updated.
