Provided, that if the ballot enclosed is to be voted at a primary election, the affidavit shall designate the name of the political party with which the voter is affiliated. In addition to the above, the said officer or officers shall provide printed slips giving full instructions regarding the manner of marking and returning the ballot in order that the same may be counted, and shall furnish one of said printed slips to each of said applicants at the same time the ballot is delivered to him. § 6. AFFIDAVITs, MARKING AND RETURNING BALLOT. Such absent voter shall make and subscribe to the affidavits provided for in the application and on the return envelope for said ballot before an officer authorized by law to administer oaths and such voter shall exhibit the ballot to such officer unmarked, and shall thereupon in the presence of such officer and of no other person mark such ballot or ballots, but in such manner that such officer can not see or know how such ballot is marked, and such ballot or ballots shall then in the presence of such officer be refolded by such voter in the manner required to be folded before depositing the same in the ballot box, and be in the presence of such officer deposited in such envelope and the envelope securely sealed. Such officer shall then endorse his certificate upon the back of said envelope and said envelope shall be mailed by such voter, postage prepaid, to the officer issuing the ballot or, if more convenient, it may be delivered in person, but in any event it must be returned into the hands of the officer in sufficient time for said ballot or ballots to be delivered by such officer to the proper polling place before the closing of the polls, on the day of the election. § 9. OPENING ENVELOPE AND voting BALLot. At the close of the regular balloting and at the close of the polls the judges of election of each voting precinct shall proceed to cast the absent voters' ballots separately, and as each absent voter's ballot is taken shall open the outer or carrier envelope, announce the absent voter's name, and compare the signature upon the application with the signature upon the affidavit on the ballot envelope. In case the judges find the affidavits properly executed, that the signatures correspond, that the applicant is a duly qualified elector in the precinct, and the applicant has not been present and voted within the county where he represents himself to be a qualified elector on such election day, they shall open the envelope containing the absent voter's ballot in such manner as not to deface or destroy the affidavit thereon, or mark or tear the ballots therein, and take out the ballot or ballots therein contained without unfolding or permitting the same to be unfolded or examined, and having endorsed the ballot in like manner as other ballots are required to be endorsed, shall deposit the same in the proper ballot box or boxes and enter the absent voter's name in the poll book the same as if he had been present and voted in person. In case such affidavit or the certificate of the officer before whom the same is taken is found to be insufficient or that the signatures do not correspond, or that the applicant is not a duly qualified elector in such precinct or that the ballot envelope is open or has been opened and resealed, or that said voter is present and has voted within the county where he represents himself to be a qualified elector on the day of such election at such election, such previously cast vote shall not be allowed, but without opening the absent voter's envelope the judge of such election shall mark across the face thereof, “Rejected”, giving the reason therefor. In case the ballot envelope contains more than one ballot of any kind, said ballots shall not be counted, but shall be marked “Rejected”, giving the reason therefor. The absent voters’ envelopes and affidavits and the absent voters’ envelope with its contents unopened, when such absent vote is rejected shall be retained and preserved in the manner as now provided for the retention and preservation of official ballots rejected at such election. 13. PENALTY CLAUSE. If any person shall wilfully swear falsely to any such affidavit, he shall, upon conviction thereof, be guilty of perjury and shall be punished as in such case is by law provided. If any person who, having procured an official ballot or ballots as heretofore provided, shall wilfully neglect or refuse to cast or return same in the manner heretofore provided, or shall wilfully violate any provision of this Act, he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be fined not less than two hundred dollars, nor more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned in the county jail not less than sixty days nor to exceed one year, or both. If any county clerk or member or clerk of the board of election commissioners or any other election officer or officers shall refuse or neglect to perform any of the duties prescribed by this Act, or shall violate any of the provisions thereof, he shall upon conviction be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars, or imprisoned in the county jail not to exceed ninety days.
