Voters' fingers may be marked to prevent duplicate voting.
- ...The fingers of new voters are being checked for ink at the polling station to prevent multiple voting.
- Multiple voting – where a voter casts more ballots than permitted – should be prohibited by law. Safeguards to prevent a person from voting again in the same or another polling station should be put in place. Examples of such safeguards include: marking the voter register to indicate an elector has voted, requiring the voter to sign the register, and marking a voter’s finger with ink.
