Section 11-46-34

Voting booths.

For all elections at which paper ballots will be used, the chief executive officer of the municipality at the expense of the municipality shall provide at each polling place in all municipalities having a population of over 3,000 inhabitants a room or covered enclosure and in such room or covered enclosure shall provide booths or compartments, one booth or compartment for each 100 or fraction thereof over 50 electors registered in the ward or wards in such municipality for that election, and shall furnish each booth or compartment with a shelf or table for the convenience of the electors in the preparation of their ballots. Each booth or compartment shall be so arranged that it will be impossible for one elector at a shelf or table in one compartment to see an elector at a shelf or table in another compartment in the act of marking his ballot. Each voting shelf or table shall be kept supplied with conveniences for marking the ballots. In voting places in municipalities having a population of 3,000 inhabitants or less no booths shall be required.
