Title 21, Chapter 2, Section 409 (21-2-409)

(a) No elector shall receive any assistance in voting at any primary or election unless he or she is unable to read the English language or he or she has a physical disability which renders him or her unable to see or mark the ballot or operate the voting machine or vote recorder or to enter the voting compartment or booth without assistance and the poll officers are satisfied that he or she suffers from the disability. Except for a blind elector, before an elector shall be permitted to receive assistance, the elector shall take an oath which shall be administered to him or her and placed in writing by a manager, giving the reason why the elector requires assistance. The name of each person assisting the elector shall be endorsed on the oath. An elector who declares that by reason of blindness he or she is unable to cast a vote as he or she wishes and who in the judgment of a manager is blind may receive assistance on the basis of the blind elector's declaration without the necessity of an oath. The name of each person assisting a blind elector shall be shown on the declaration.

(b)(1) In elections in which there is a federal candidate on the ballot, any elector who is entitled to receive assistance in voting under this Code section shall be permitted by the managers to select any person of the elector's choice except the elector's employer or agent of that employer or officer or agent of the elector's union.

(2) In all other elections, any elector who is entitled to receive assistance in voting under this Code section shall be permitted by the managers to select (1) any elector, except a poll officer or poll watcher, who is a resident of the precinct in which the elector requiring assistance is attempting to vote; or (2) the mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, or child of the elector entitled to receive assistance, to enter the voting compartment or booth with him or her to assist in voting, such assistance to be rendered inside the voting compartment or booth. No person shall assist more than ten such electors in any primary, election, or runoff covered by this paragraph.

(c) The oaths or declarations of assisted electors shall be returned by the chief manager to the superintendent. The oaths or declarations of assisted electors shall be available in the superintendent's office for public inspection.
