JARRIE v. REGINAM (Mag. App. No. 18/57)) [1957] SLSC 1265 (03 September 1957);

A person applies for a ballot paper in terms of reg. 29(1) of the House of Representatives (Elections) Regulations, 1957, and thus attempts to vote in terms of reg. 71, as
soon as he gives his name to a polling assistant and if that name is not his own he is guilty of personation; the organization of the polling station, which may mean that the accused did not reach the stage
where ballot papers were issued, is immaterial (page 19, lines 23-27; page 20, lines 3-12).
