§3-1-25. Supplies by special messenger.

In case any commissioner of election or poll clerk fails to

appear at the offices of the clerk of the county commission by the

close of the clerk's office on the day prior to any election, the

board of ballot commissioners, the chairman or the clerk of the

county commission shall forthwith dispatch a special messenger to

the commissioners of election of each respective precinct with the

ballots, registration records, ballot boxes, poll books and other

supplies for the precinct. The messenger, if not a county

employee, shall be allowed five dollars for this service. The

messenger shall also receive mileage up to the rate of

reimbursement authorized by the travel management rule of the

Department of Administration for each mile necessarily traveled in

the performance of his or her services. The messenger shall

promptly report to the clerk of county commission and file with the

clerk the receipts of the person to whom he or she delivered the

ballots and other supplies and his or her affidavit stating when

and to whom he or she delivered them.
