Ala. Admin. Code r. 307-X-1-.15 - Challenged Ballots

(1) The procedure for challenging voters shall be the same as prescribed in Chapter 17-12 and Sections 17-16-23 and 17-16-24. After the challenged voter has signed the poll list, the poll list clerk shall: take a regular marksense ballot, write on it the number adjacent to the voter's name on the poll list, disable the ballot so that it cannot be counted electronically, and give it to the challenged voter. A challenged ballot may also be cast on a paper ballot as now prescribed by law. When the challenged voter has completed the ballot, it shall be deposited in a separate box or envelope maintained for that purpose by the ballot clerk. In central count systems, challenged ballots shall be counted by hand after the central count poll officials at the central count location have been closed the polls. In precinct count systems, challenged ballots shall be counted by hand by the precinct poll officials at the precincts and the results shall be handwritten on the tape printed by the precinct ballot counter which contains the totals.
(2) Where multiple poll lists are used in a voting center, a separate challenged voters' poll list shall be used so that each number can be associated with only one name.
