PART II. ELECTION.
§8-2-5. Special election -- Voting precincts; time for election;
supplies; commissioners and clerks; notice.
Upon receiving such a report from said enumerators, the county
court shall forthwith fix a date for a special election, not later
than thirty days thereafter, on which all qualified electors of the
territory shall vote upon the question of incorporation between
such hours as may be fixed by order of said court. For the purpose
of holding and conducting said election, the county court shall
divide the territory into one or more precincts, consisting of not
more than five hundred qualified voters in each precinct; shall
arrange for and provide at its expense polling places, registration
books, challenges and other election supplies as provided for by
law in general elections; shall appoint three commissioners of
election and two clerks from the qualified electors of said
territory for each precinct so established, dividing the election
officials as nearly as possible equally between those favoring
incorporation and those opposed to incorporation; and shall give
notice of the date and place or places of election and hours for
voting by publication of such notice as a Class II-0 legal
advertisement in compliance with the provisions of article three,
chapter fifty-nine of this code, and the publication area for such
publication shall be the territory sought to be incorporated.
