(1) Upon receipt of an envelope containing a marked absentee ballot, the clerk shall keep it safely in the office and, before delivering the ballot for counting, shall compare the signature of the absent elector which appears on the back of the absentee ballot envelope with that upon the applicant’s registration card. If the signatures appear to be the same, the envelope shall be marked in order to indicate that the ballot may be counted.
(2) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the absentee ballots shall be counted and returns shall be made, as nearly as possible, in the same manner as for other ballots cast at the election.
