§3-4A-17. Check of vote-recording devices and electronic poll

books before use; corrections; reserve

vote-recording devices.

     (a) Any reserve vote-recording device used is to be prepared

for use by the clerk or his or her duly appointed deputy and the

reserve vote-recording device is to be prepared, inspected and

sealed and delivered to the polling place wherein the seal is to be

broken and the device opened in the presence of the precinct

election commissioners who shall certify in writing signed by them

to the clerk of the county commission, that the reserve

vote-recording device was found to be sealed upon delivery to the

polling place, that the seal was broken and the device opened in

their presence at the polling place.

     (b) In counties using electronic poll books, the election

commissioners shall examine the electronic poll books to ascertain

whether the poll books are in working order before allowing any

voters to enter the polling location. If the electronic poll books

are not in working order, the election commissioners shall contact

the county clerk who shall immediately authorize a printed poll

book to serve in place of the electronic poll book for that

election. A printed poll book may accompany the electronic poll

book to each precinct.
