§3-4A-30. Adjustments in voting precincts where electronic voting

system used.

(a) The provisions of section five, article one of this

chapter, relating to the number of registered voters in each

precinct, shall apply to and control in precincts in counties in

which electronic voting systems have been adopted, except that the

maximum number of registered voters shall be one thousand five

hundred per precinct. The county commissions of such counties,

subject to other provisions of this chapter with respect to the

altering or changing of the boundaries of voting precincts, may

change the boundaries of precincts or consolidate precincts as

practicable, to achieve the maximum advantage from the use of

electronic voting systems.

(b) The county commission may, in the urban centers of any

county adopting an electronic voting system, designate a voting

place outside the boundaries of a precinct, provided such voting

place is in a public building of sufficient size and in an

adjoining precinct. In such event, more than one precinct may vote

in any such public building. Upon combination of adjoining

precincts pursuant to this subsection, the county commission shall:

(1) Publish its order combining the precincts in the same manner as

an order of consolidation pursuant to section seven, article one of

this chapter; and (2) cause its order to be published with each

sample ballot publication required by this chapter.
