§3-10-9. Costs of special elections paid by state.

     If an election as required by section two or four of this

article cannot be held in conjunction with the regular election

dates, then the cost of printing ballots and all other reasonable

and necessary expenses in holding and making the return of the new

election to fill a vacancy are obligations of the state incurred by

the ballot commissioners, clerks of the county commissions and

county commissions of the various counties as agents of the state.

All expenses of the new election are to be audited by the Secretary

of State. The Secretary of State shall prepare and transmit to the

county commissions forms on which the county commissions shall

certify all expenses of the new election to the Secretary of State.

If satisfied that the expenses as certified by the county

commissions are reasonable and were necessarily incurred, the

Secretary of State shall requisition the necessary warrants from

the Auditor of the state to be drawn on the State Treasurer and

shall mail the warrants directly to the vendors of the new election

services, supplies and facilities.
