The polling area is set up to protect the objectives of ballot security and secrecy. The Division's voting booths are used so that the voter may mark his/her ballot in secrecy. Ideally the voting area should be one where access may easily be controlled. In determining the location of voting booths, check off tables, and entrances and exits from the voting area, the Division agent tries to avoid any situations where voters who have voted pass by those waiting to vote. Observers whose function is to identify voters and check them off on the eligibility list are seated with the Division agent in an area where the voters must pass in order to vote.
