Article 29 states:
…Blind and other voters with a disability who cannot record their views on the election or referendum ballot papers without assistance may express their choice verbally in a manner such that only the committee members can hear. The secretary of the polling station committee shall record the voter’s choice on his ballot-paper, and the head of the polling station committee shall sign it and record next to the voter’s name on the voter list that the voter expressed his choice according to this procedure. These voters may also delegate a person to attend voting with them before the polling station committee, to write their electoral or referendum choice on the ballot papers they receive from the head of the committee. This delegation shall be recorded in the minutes.
