Electoral symbol

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An electoral symbol is a standardised symbol allocated to a political party. Symbols are used by parties in their campaigning, and printed on ballot papers where a voter must make a mark to vote for the associated party. Their purpose is to facilitate voting by illiterate people, who cannot read parties' names on ballot papers.[1] Examples include an elephant's head and three lotus flowers (Cambodian Democratic Party) and a hand (Indian National Congress). In Brazil parties are allocated two-digit numbers, easily recognised by the illiterate, instead.

In Israel parties are identified by a symbol composed of one, two or three Hebrew letters; this facilitates voters whose knowledge of Hebrew or Arabic (the two official languages) is limited.[2]
