§3-6-4. Late nominations; stickers.

If a nomination to fill a vacancy is made by a political party

executive committee or, on its failure to so act within the time

prescribed by law, is made by the chairman of the committee, and

certified to the clerk of the county commission after the ballots

to be used at the ensuing election shall have been printed, the

clerk shall forthwith lay such certificates before the ballot

commissioners who, without delay, shall prepare, or cause to be

prepared, and deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the election

commissioners of each precinct in which the candidate is to be

voted for, a number of stickers, containing only the name of the

candidate, at least equal to the total number of ballots provided

for the precinct; but no such stickers shall be furnished to or

received by any person except a commissioner of election. It is

the duty of the commissioners holding the election to deliver such

stickers to the poll clerks, who shall, in the presence of the

election commissioners, affix one of the stickers in a careful

manner at the proper place for the name of the candidate, upon each

ballot to be voted at the election, before the poll clerks sign

their names on the ballots. The stickers may be delivered to the

election officers, by the clerk of the county commission, with the

ballots, poll books and other supplies.
