Title 21, Chapter 2, Section 470 (21-2-470)

(a) In precincts in which vote recorders are used, the procedure for an elector to obtain a ballot card, to record his or her vote thereon, and to deposit his or her ballot card in the ballot box shall conform to the procedure prescribed in this chapter for paper ballots insofar as practicable.

(b) If an elector shall ask for instructions concerning the manner of voting, a poll officer may give him or her such instructions, but no person giving an elector such instructions shall in any manner request, suggest, or seek to persuade or induce any such elector to vote any particular ticket or for any particular candidate or for or against any particular question. After giving such instructions and before the elector closes the booth or votes, the poll officer shall retire and the elector shall immediately vote.

(c) If an elector spoils or defaces a ballot card or write-in ballot, he or she shall return it to the managers and receive another. A manager shall immediately cancel the spoiled ballot by writing the word "spoiled" across said ballot and shall place it in the container for spoiled ballots.

(d) After marking the ballot card, the elector shall then leave the compartment and exhibit his or her ballot card number strip to a poll officer. The elector, unless his or her vote is challenged, shall remove the number strip in the presence of a poll officer before depositing the ballot card in the ballot box. If the vote is challenged, then the ballot card with the number strip attached shall be placed in an envelope marked "challenged," provided for that purpose.

(e) The poll officers shall inspect the face of the vote recorder and the ballot labels at least once every hour during the time when the polls are open to determine that the recorder and the ballot labels have not been damaged or tampered with.

(f) The number strip shall either be deposited in the stub box or placed upon a spindle file maintained by the poll officer for such purpose, and the number strips shall be retained with the ballots and other stubs.

(g) The superintendent shall have at least one voting booth in each precinct modified or shall make paper ballots available for disabled electors who, due to their disability, are unable to vote on a vote recorder in a regular voting booth. Absentee ballots may be used for this purpose. The superintendent shall provide sufficient accommodations to permit such a disabled elector to vote in private.

(h) If any vote recorder becomes damaged so as to render it inoperative in whole or in part, the chief manager shall promptly notify the superintendent or custodian, who shall have such vote recorder repaired or replaced.
