The Australian Ballot.
Editor Constitution :
What is tho Australian ballot ays
tom now being tried in Massachusetts?
Wc give here, in n few words, tho
gist-of the law. All ballots are prin
ted at the public’s expense. Each
ballot contains the names of nil the
candidates for office of either party,
with the words “demoractic,” ‘ repub
lican,” “prohibition,” etc, opposite
each name to designate each candi
One ballot is supplied to each voter,
and he cannot have another unless he
returns the first to the election officers,
it he has spoiled it. When the voter
has received his ballot from the elec
tion officers, he must, while closeted
in the boxes prepared for the purpose,
mark bis ballot to suit himself. He
must make a cross—X—opposite the
name of each of the candidates for
whom he desires to vote. His vote
will not be counted for any other
. candidate than those whose names
have had a cross (two lines intersect
ing each other) marked opposite them
with ink or pencil.
