16-513. Instructions for voters and election officers; overvote notice
A. The board of supervisors shall prepare instructions for the guidance of voters and election officers at the election, according to which the election shall be conducted and which shall govern the voters and election officers as provided in the secretary of state's instructions and procedures manual. The board of supervisors shall furnish to the inspector in each election precinct at least two instruction cards, at the time and in the same manner as the printed ballots are furnished.
B. If the voting equipment used for the election provides for the rejection of overvoted ballots or ballots that contain other irregularities, the board of supervisors shall provide for a written notice advising the voter that if the voter chooses to override the overvoted office or measure or override any other ballot irregularity, the voter's vote for that office or measure will not be tallied. The notice shall be posted on or near the voting equipment so that the voter has a clear view of the notice.
