This template, proposed by the Albanian Blind Association, is drafted properly at the size and the form of the ballot paper.
The information and the form of the ballot, as it is determined by the Central Election Commission in Albania (CEC), is written down at the template in Braille writing. Also beside the name of each electoral subject and candidate, on the surface of the template is a space in form of a quadrant of a diameter of 5 mm which will serve to guide blind voters in writing down the ballot in the specific name of the candidate and electoral party. Specifying made above on the ballot, highlight that will be for all the ballot papers to ensure the secrecy of the ballot for the blind citizens.
The usage of the template, an innovation presented by the Association of Blind People of Albania, is of vital importance to enable blind voters to read the ballot sheet independently and guarantee them the right of independent and secret ballot to all voters with visual impairments in Albania.
