Election officers and police officers working on Polling Day, Monday, November 7 are eligible to vote on Advance Polling Day.

Additionally, a voter who is incapacitated by reason of being an elderly person, (with the definition of an elderly person being seventy years or older), by reason of illiteracy or physical cause, is eligible to vote on Advance Polling Day.

Any voter accompanied by a friend, and the friend who must be a voter in that local electoral district, will be permitted by the presiding officer to mark the voter’s ballot paper for him. However, a person shall not at any election be allowed to act as such a friend to more than one voter. “Friend” in this instance includes family and relatives.

    I believe assigned electoral officers need to accompany the elderly into the voting booth to make sure 'these special friends' are not taking advantage of the elderly. I know for a fact during the last election these 'special friends' voted for whom they wanted and not necessarily the wishes of the elderly.

      You couldn't have said it better. That is why observers are needed for elections.
