16-571. Poll lists to be kept by election clerk; posting
A. In precincts in which electronic poll book systems are not used, at least one election board clerk shall keep a list in duplicate of persons voting, and the name of each person who votes shall be entered thereon and numbered in the order of voting.
B. In precincts in which electronic poll book systems are not used, the poll list as prescribed in section 16-516 shall be written on one side only, and triplicate copies may be provided. Immediately upon the completion of each page of the poll list and if copies are available, one copy shall, upon request, be given to a representative designated by each major political party. In an election with nonpartisan candidates or ballot issues, the officer in charge of the jurisdiction that is conducting the election may designate who is to receive copies of the poll lists. For the purposes of this subsection, "major political party" means the two parties receiving the highest number of votes for governor or presidential electors at the last election.
C. In precincts in which electronic poll book systems are used, at least one list of persons voting shall be available by printed or electronic media. The list shall be in substantially the same format as prescribed in section 16-516 and on request shall be given to a representative designated by each major political party. The information contained in the list also may be provided electronically to a representative designated by each major political party by way of a secure electronic file transmittal format as prescribed by the secretary of state.
