Mr. Chairman, at the
suggestion of the hon. member for Shelburne-Yarmouth (Mr. Ralston), in regard to the case of an illiterate voter who does not sign his name I have drafted a short amendment that might cover some of the objections that have been offered to this section. The amendment is as follows:
That is my true name, and that
the signature hereto is in my usual handwriting; or in the case of an illiterate voter, that the mark placed hereto is my usual method of signing my name.
I should be content to accept that amendment instead of the section as drawn.
