303. The polling stations of an electoral precinct shall be grouped and situated in a place of convenient access, and shall be accessible to handicapped persons.
However, where a special circumstance or where the area of the electoral precinct justifies it, the returning officer may establish the polling stations in more than one place.
Furthermore, where the returning officer is unable to establish a polling station in a place accessible to handicapped persons, he must obtain the authorization of the Chief Electoral Officer before establishing the polling station in a place that is not accessible to the handicapped. The Chief Electoral Officer shall note, in the return published under section 381, the cases where such authorization was granted.
