There are five (5) reasons that ballot are rejected.
- The ballot paper does not have the Presiding Officer's initials on the back of it - The voter votes for more candidates than seats that are to be filled - The ballot paper is not marked for any candidate - The ballot paper contains any mark or writing that can identify the voter - The ballot paper is unmarked or void for uncertainty
