(pica) type, an appropriate direction or instruction to the
voter, informing him of the number of persons for whom he
may lawfully vote for the particular office mentioned immedi-
ately above each such direction, thus: "Vote for one, " or "vote
for two, " or "vote for six, " as the case may be. To the right of
the name of each candidate upon the official ballot, and prop-
erly separated from said names, and immediately to the left of
the square opposite the name of the candidate, and in line
therewith, shall be added the designation of the party or princi-
pal which the candidate represents, as is duly contained in the
certificate of nomination or nomination papers (said designa-
tion of the party, however, shall consist solely of the name of
the party and nothing more). ' To the name of each candidate
for State office or candidate for Congress shall be added the
name of the county or city in which the candidate resides. Bal-
lots shall be so printed as to give each voter a clear opportunity
to designate by a cross (x) in a square at the right of the
name of each candidate, and at the right of each question, his
choice of candidates and his answer to such question. If the
candidate is named for the same office on two or more certifi-
cates of nomination, his name shall be printed on the ballot
but once, and to the right of the name of said candidate shall be
added the names of each of the parties or principals which the
candidate represents. When the name of a political party is
given in connection with the name of a candidate nominated
as provided in Section 42 of this Article, it shall be stated on
the ballot to the right of the name of the candidate; but if there
shall have been any nomination for the same office by a conven-

certified as hereinbefore provided, the word "Independent"
shall precede the party name, and if the candidate is nominated
under the provisions of the said Section 42, to be printed to the
right of the name of each candidate, except presidential elect-

nations made by more than one convention or primary election,
and duly certified as aforesaid, the officers by whom the ballot is
to be prepared, or a majority of them, shall determine which
nominees are justly entitled to the party name, and the word
"Independent" shall precede the party name of the other nom-
inee. The names of candidates for the office of electors of presi-
dent and vice-president of the United States shall be arranged
in groups, as presented in the several certificates of nomination
papers, and the several groups shall be arranged in such order
of the surnames of the candidates for president as the several
Boards of Supervisors shall prescribe in the city of Baltimore,
and in the several counties, respectively. If candidates for
