Question: Should section be amended to remove the language that provides for the counting of ballots at precincts and entering the votes on tally sheets?

Proposed Language:

§ 14     Election Results

The candidate having the largest number of votes for each office voted upon at the regular Municipal election shall be declared elected to the office. In case it cannot be determined which of two or more candidates shall be declared elected, by reason of the fact that they have received the same number of votes, the election authorities shall determine by lot which of the candidates shall be declared elected.
