§ 3031.20. Unofficial ballot labels; repair and alternate use of paper ballots
(a) If ballot labels for an election district at which an electronic voting system is to be used, shall not be delivered to the election officers of that district as required by section 1110-a,1 the judge of election of such district shall cause other labels to be prepared, printed, or written, as nearly in the form of official ballot labels as practicable, and the election officers shall cause the labels so substituted, to be used at the election insofar as is possible in the same manner as the official labels. Such labels, so substituted, shall be known as unofficial ballot labels.
(b) If any electronic voting system or any component thereof being used in any election shall become inoperable during such election, it shall, if possible, be repaired or another machine substituted by the custodian or county board of elections as promptly as possible, for which purpose the county board may purchase as many extra systems or system components as it may deem necessary, but in case such repair or substitution cannot be made, paper ballots, either printed or written and of any suitable form, may be used for registering votes.
