Conclave to have three voting urns, two stoves


Vatican City, March 5 - The Vatican said Tuesday
that three urns will be used to collect votes at the upcoming
conclave to elect the next pope and that two stoves will be
The Vatican's press office showed pictures at a news
conference of the urns with locks on top that will be used.
Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said one urn
will be use to collect the votes, another for ballots that have
been counted and the other is there to be taken to any cardinals
who cannot get to the Sistine Chapel to vote.
They were designed by Italian sculptor Cecco Bonanotte.
Lombardi added that two stoves would be in use, one to burn
the ballots and the other to create the smoke that lets the
world know whether the cardinals have elected a new pope - white
if they have, black if they have not.
"If there were only the papers (of the votes) burning,
there wouldn't be enough smoke," Lombardi explained. "It's
necessary to put in special smoke to show the result better".
