§3-1-23. County commission to arrange polling places and

equipment; requirements.

The county commission in each county, before each election,

shall secure, for each voting precinct in the county, a suitable

room or building in which to hold the election, and shall cause the

same to be suitably provided with heat, drinking water and light

and a sufficient number of booths or compartments, each containing

a table, counter or shelf, and furnished with proper supplies for

preparing ballots, at or in which voters may conveniently prepare

their ballots, so that in the preparation thereof they may be

secure from the observation of others. The number of such booths

or compartments shall not be less than two. Such room or building

shall be located in such precinct: Provided, That upon a

determination of the county commission that a suitable room or

building in which to hold the election is not reasonably available

in such precinct then the county commission may secure a suitable

room or building in which to hold the election for such precinct in

an adjacent precinct in said county, in a location as near as may

be to the territory of the precinct for which such room or building

is provided. At any polling place for which parking spaces are

available nearby, at least one parking space shall be reserved for

handicapped voters and clearly designated as such.
