Voters must produce ID

Unlike in elections where there are multiple candidates, the ballot paper in a referendum only has two options -- Yes or No.

Upon arrival at the polling station, the voter will be asked for a form of valid ID. Their name will be crossed off the register and they will be issued with a ballot paper.

The ballot paper asks: "Do you approve of the proposal to amend the Constitution contained in the undermentioned Bill?"

To mark the ballot paper, simply place an X in the box marked "Ta Yes" or the box marked "Nil No". It is vital to only mark one box clearly.

Once the voter marks their chosen box, they fold the paper and place it in the ballot box.
