“Applicants requesting for special voting must be qualified voters in the district and can vote only in the referendum.

“Again, voters who want to have proxy vote, that is, have someone else cast their vote for them, must go with the proxy who should be a registered voter at the same polling station to the District Offices of the Commission for the necessary procedures to be effected.”
