What is Tendered Vote?


It may happen that a person presents himself at the polling station and seeks to vote representing himself to be a particular elector and you find that another person has already voted as such elector. In such a case you shall satisfy yourself about the identity of that person to be the elector concerned. If you are satisfied about the identity of the elector on his satisfactorily answering such questions relating to his identity as you may ask and presenting the documents proving his identity, you shall allow the elector concerned to vote by means of a tendered ballot paper, but not through the voting machine. Such vote is called ‘tendered vote’. /2019/04/what-is-tendered-vote-how-to-count-tendered-votes-procedure-of-tendered-votes.html

RECORD OF VOTERS TO WHOM TENDERED BALLOT PAPERS ISSUED

You shall also maintain complete record of the electors who have been issued with tendered ballot papers, in Form 17B. You shall also obtain the signature or thumb impression of the elector in Column (5) of that Form before delivering a tendered ballot paper to him.

While delivering a tendered ballot paper to the elector, you shall also supply an inked arrow cross mark rubber stamp to him. This stamp is the same which was used for marking ballot papers in the conventional system of voting using ballot papers and ballot boxes for the purpose. This stamp will be supplied as one of the items of polling materials for use at the polling station.

On receiving the tendered ballot paper, the elector concerned will go into the Voting Compartment and will mark his vote on the ballot paper by putting the cross mark on or near the symbol of the contesting candidate of his choice by means of the arrow cross mark rubber stamp.

The elector will then fold the tendered ballot paper and after coming out of the Voting Compartment hand it over to you.

The Presiding Officer shall keep all the tendered ballot papers and the list of such tendered ballot papers (prepared in Form 17B) in a cover specially provided for the purpose and seal the cover at the close of the poll.
