        How to Vote Election Day - Tuesday, November 4th, 1890

All Official Ballots (and none other can be used) are printed at public expense and distributed by the Election Officers only, but "paster ballots" may be taken into the Polling Place and used if the voter chooses. The voter passes within the Guard Rail, announces his name and the Poll Clerk checks it on the list. The Ballot Clerk then gives and the voter must take one of each kind of Ballot, he then goes immediately into the booth (which is a closet three feet square, with shelf, pen, ink, etc.) The door is closed and no one can see what the voter does. He can select his party ticket and vote that, or he can mark off any name and write in another, or he can paste on to a ballot a "paster ballot" which he may have brought with him.
This "paster ballot" can be stuck on to the face of any one of the ballots which he received from the Ballot Clerk, but must be put on  so that it will not show when the ballot is folded, and that is the vote which will be counted, no matter what other names may be printed or whether they be erased or not. The voter then folds all the ballots singly and goes to the Ballot Box where the Inspectors receive the ballot which he wishes to vote and puts it into the Ballot Box, then the Inspector takes all of the other ballots and puts them into another box.
Take care and not mix the Ballot you wish to vote with the others.
You cannot carry any of the Official Ballots away.
