                               (a)    the returning officer of the elected authority may designate the location of the voting station;

                              (b)    the location of more than one voting station may be designated for each voting subdivision.

Elector’s statement

                               (a)    the elected authority may define lodge accommodation as a home, including a self‑contained housing unit, for the use of persons of advanced years who

                                        (i)    are not suffering from any chronic disease that incapacitates them, and

                                      (ii)    may or may not be capable of or desirous of maintaining their own housing accommodation,

                                  and

                              (b)    the returning officer of the elected authority may appoint the number of deputies that the returning officer considers necessary to take the votes of electors who reside in lodge accommodation, as defined under clause (a), and are unable to attend a voting station or advance voting station to vote.
