Title 21, Chapter 2, Section 473 (21-2-473)

As soon as the polls are closed and the last elector has voted in precincts in which vote recorders are used, the poll officers shall:

(1) Place the vote recorders under lock or seal;

(2) Count and record on return sheets, in ink, in triplicate, the number of persons voting as shown on the numbered list of voters; the number of ballots unused; the number of ballots issued to electors as shown by the stubs; and the number of ballots spoiled and returned by electors and canceled; and if any differences exist they shall be reconciled, if possible; otherwise they shall be noted on the returns;

(3) As soon as all votes are accounted for, seal the unused and void, spoiled, or canceled ballots in separate envelopes with the number noted on the outside;

(4) Open each ballot box and count the number of ballots cast;

(5) Examine the ballot cards and separate those ballots containing write-in votes;

(6) Place the remaining ballot cards in the ballot container to be taken to the tabulating machine center or centers, as designated by the superintendent;

(7) Record in ink the designation of the polling place and a serial number on all write-in ballots, starting with the number one, and place the same number on the ballot card voted by the same elector, so that write-in ballots may be identified with the corresponding ballot cards;

(8) After the write-in ballots have been so marked, place the write-in ballots in an envelope marked "Write-in Ballots" and designate the polling place and the number of write-in ballots contained therein on such envelope, which shall be sealed and signed by the managers and placed in the ballot container with the other ballot cards;

(9) Place any ballot card that is so torn, bent, or mutilated that it may not be counted by the tabulating machine in an envelope marked "Defective Ballots" and place the envelope in the container with other ballot cards; and

(10) In the event that paper ballots are used in conjunction with ballot cards, conduct the counting of the paper ballots as provided by this chapter.
