§3-4A-10a. Proportional distribution of vote recording devices.
Where vote recording devices are used, the county commission
of each county shall, upon the close of registration, review the
total number of registered voters and the number of registered
voters of each party in each precinct. Prior to each election, the
commission shall determine the number of voting devices needed to
accommodate voters without long delays and shall assign an
appropriate number to each precinct. For the purposes of the
primary election, the commission shall assign the number of vote
recording devices in each precinct to be prepared for each party
based as nearly as practicable on the proportion of registered
voters of each party to the total: Provided, That a minimum of one
vote recording device per party be provided, except for
"independent" voters, which shall be determined under section
twenty of this article.
