If the use of an electronic voting system shall have been

adopted as hereinbefore provided, it shall be the duty of the

by sealed competitive bidding.

If it shall be impossible for the county commission to comply

at the next primary or general election, it shall in any event do

so at the next following primary or general election, whichever

shall first occur.

It shall be the further duty of the county commission of such

county to acquire prior to any election in which such electronic

voting system is to be used, the use of automatic tabulating

equipment approved by the state election commission, for the

purpose of counting votes in such election. In addition, the

county commission of such county shall provide the necessary

central counting center for use in said election. Such central

counting center shall be located at the county seat of the county
