Act 116 of 1954

168.625 Voting and canvassing delegate ballot; returns; notice; furnishing names and addresses of delegates to county convention; tie vote; determination of successful candidate; determining if candidate is registered elector; certification.

Sec. 625.

A delegate ballot shall be voted and canvassed by the precinct inspectors in the same manner as ballots bearing the names of the candidates for other county offices. The returns shall be made direct to the county clerk, who shall immediately notify the successful candidates by registered, certified, or first class mail at the address given in their nominating petitions. The county clerk shall, at the same time, furnish the chairperson of the county committee of each political party with the names and addresses of the delegates to the county convention of the chairperson's political party as required in section 608. However, in case of a tie vote between the candidates for delegate in any precinct, the county clerk shall notify the candidates to appear in his or her office at a specified time, and the successful candidate shall be determined by drawing in a manner similar to that provided in section 851. If a candidate is elected who has not filed a nominating petition and whose name is not printed on the ballots, the chairperson of the board of precinct election inspectors shall determine if the candidate is a registered elector in that precinct. If the candidate is a registered elector in that precinct, the candidate's name and address shall be certified to the county clerk on the return and if not registered, the candidate's name shall not be certified on the return.
