This section is included in your selections.

If a voter mutilates, improperly marks, spoils or otherwise damages the voter’s ballot, the voter may request and the election official shall provide another ballot upon the voter returning the damaged ballot to the election official. Without examining the spoiled ballot, the election official shall return the ballot to the voter, who shall destroy and discard it immediately in the presence of an election official. The election official then shall issue to the voter a new ballot of the same type that was spoiled, and shall record that there was a spoiled ballot. A voter may obtain a maximum of three replacements for each ballot under this section. (Ord. 12-20 § 29, 2012; Ord. 04-24(SUB) § 7, 2004; prior code § 18.30.080)
