Section 11-16-20

Preparation of poll lists; numbering of ballots.

The name of each elector whose ballot has been received must immediately be taken down by each clerk on separate lists, which shall be known as the poll list, and the number or the order in which each elector votes must at the same time be entered by each clerk against his name, the first elector voting being number one, the second number two and so on to the last elector voting, and one of the inspectors shall correctly number each ballot with the number to correspond with the number opposite the elector's name on the poll list.
