A spoilt ballot is a cancelled ballot. The cancellation is done by the Presiding Officer in the Polling Station. A spoilt ballot does not make it into the ballot box and does not become a vote.

A rejected ballot is a void vote, or a bad vote. It is declared void by the Returning Officer in the Counting Station. A rejected vote is not a part of the votes counted for each candidate.

There are five (5) reasons as follows:

- The ballot paper does not have the Presiding Officer's initials on the back of it
- The elector votes for more candidates than seats
- The ballot paper is not marked for any candidate
- The ballot paper contains any mark or writing that can identify the elector
- The ballot paper is unmarked or void for uncertainty
