226. An elector who declares under oath that he is unable to mark his ballot paper himself by reason of an infirmity or because he cannot read, may be assisted either
(1) by the deputy returning officer or the poll clerk, in the presence of the representatives assigned to the polling station, or
(2) by another elector, in the presence of the deputy returning officer or the poll clerk.
Where an elector chooses to be assisted by another elector, the latter shall declare under oath that he has not assisted another elector during the poll and that he will not disclose the name of the candidate for whom the elector votes in his presence.
A deaf or mute elector may be assisted, for the purposes of communicating with the election officers and representatives, by a person capable of interpreting the sign language of the deaf.
An indication that an elector has availed himself of this section shall be entered in the poll book.
