Edmonton Bulletin directions to voters in the 1893 Edmonton municipal election
The Voter will go into one of the apartments provided, and with a pencil make a cross opposite the name or names on the right hand side of the ballot paper, of the party or parties for whom he wishes to vote, thus X.
If the Voter votes for more candidates than he is by law entitled to vote for, his ballot paper will be void, unless he discovers the fact before the same is deposited in the ballot box, when he can obtain a new one from the Returning Officer.
If the voter inadvertently spoils a ballot paper, he can obtain a new one, on satisfying the Returning Officer of the fact.
If the Voter places any mark on the ballot paper, by which he may afterwards be identified, his ballot paper will be void.
The voter, after he has made the cross X opposite the name or names of the party or parties for whom he wishes to vote, shall fold up his ballot paper so as to show the initials of the Deputy Returning Officer on the back thereof, but so as to conceal the manner in which he has voted, and shall deliver the same to the Deputy Returning Officer, and shall forthwith quit the polling place.
