§3-1-33. How elections conducted by double boards.

In all precincts wherein two election boards shall have been

appointed, the receiving board shall attend at the opening of the

polls, shall open the polls, and shall proceed with the election.

The counting board shall attend at the voting place not later than

three hours after the opening of the polls, and shall take charge

of the ballot box containing the ballots theretofore cast in that

precinct. They shall retire to a partitioned room or space in the

voting place and there proceed to count and tabulate the ballots

cast, as they shall find them deposited in the ballot box. The

receiving board shall continue to receive the vote of electors in

the other box, until such time as the counting board shall have

finished counting and tabulating the ballots cast in the first

ballot box. The county board shall, before exchanging the ballot

boxes as herein provided, seal the ballots counted by it in

envelopes to be provided for the purpose, which shall not be opened

until the two boards shall together proceed with counting,

tabulating and summarizing the votes as by this chapter provided.

The two boards shall then exchange the first box for the second

box, and so continue until the hour of closing the polls arrives.
