(1) Marksense ballots shall, so far as practicable, be in the same order of arrangement as provided by Sections 17-8-4 and 17-8-5 for paper ballots, except that they shall be of the size and design required by the marksense ballot counters and may be printed upon one or more separate pages or cards. Marksense ballots shall not contain the square for the voters' numbers as provided in Sections 17-8-13 and 17-8-35, and seals shall not be provided for each ballot.

This ballot style number shall represent the political race makeup of the ballot.
(2) In primary elections, constitutional amendments may be printed on party ballots, provided that sufficient ballots containing only the constitutional amendments are available for these voters who do not wish to sign the pledge for a party ballot.
(3) Secrecy envelops or folders shall be provided in sufficient quantity for use by voters in transporting their completed ballots from the voting stations to the precinct counter or ballot box.
