Ballot card

SECTION 1. Article 13 of Chapter 13 of Title 7 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:

"Section 7-13-1371. (a) Ballot cards used in conjunction with an optical scanning device must include an instruction to vote both sides of the ballot card. This instruction must appear conspicuously at the top and at the bottom of the front side of the ballot card and must be printed in bold-faced type at least as large as the largest type on the ballot card.

(b) Any ballot card used in conjunction with an optical scanning device during a presidential election or primary must be designed so that the front of the ballot card contains only the instructions for voting for president and the names of the presidential candidates. The instructions for voting the remainder of the ballot card and the names of the remaining candidates must be placed on the reverse side of the ballot card or they must be placed on a separate ballot card.

(c) The State Election Commission must establish the form of a sign to be displayed in any polling place utilizing an optical scanning device. This sign must notify voters to vote both sides of the ballot card and must be displayed in three conspicuous places in the polling place."
