134. The deputy returning officer shall reject every ballot paper that does not bear his initials. However, the ballot paper shall not be rejected where all of the following conditions are met:
(1)  the number of ballot papers found in the ballot box corresponds to the number of ballot papers which, according to the list of electors and the poll book, as the case may be, were placed in it;
(2)  the ballot papers found in the ballot box which bear no initials are, on their face, those furnished by the deputy returning officer;
(3)  the deputy returning officer signs an affidavit attesting that he inadvertently omitted or forgot to affix his initials to a specified number of ballot papers.
The deputy returning officer shall then, in full view of the persons present, affix his initials to the back of every ballot that does not bear them, and shall enter on each ballot, following his initials, a note indicating that they were affixed as a correction. An entry thereof shall be made in the poll book.
