AS 15.15.060. Polling Places, Voting Booths, and Supplies.

(a) Immediately following the appointment of the election board, the election supervisor in conjunction with the election board chair shall secure polling places for holding the election, suitable ballot boxes that will assure security, and an adequate number of voting booths or screens, national flags, pens, and pencils. At every polling place, at least one voting booth shall be furnished and not less than one voting booth or screen shall be furnished for each 100 votes or fractional part of 100 votes cast in the previous election. At every polling place, at least one-half of the voting booths used shall be not less than six feet in height, enclosed on three sides, and provided with a curtain extending from the top of the voting booth to within approximately 30 inches of the floor. The curtain of the voting booth must conceal the voter while voting. The election supervisor and the election board chair may, in an emergency, secure an alternate location for a polling place.

(b) To assure administrative economy and to protect the secrecy of the ballot, the director may adopt regulations prescribing

(1) the type of polling place for holding the election;

(2) the requirements regarding ballot boxes, voting screens, national flags, and other supplies; and

(3) subject to the specifications of (a) of this section, the requirements regarding voting booths.

(c) The director shall pay the cost of necessary election expenses incurred in securing a place for holding the election, a suitable ballot box, and an adequate number of voting booths, screens, national flags, and other supplies. The national flag shall be displayed over or near the entrance of each polling place.

(d) When the director determines that there is an area in the state where a voter may be confused as to the voter's correct precinct polling place, the director shall provide each polling place in that area with maps and materials that indicate house district boundaries, precinct boundaries, and polling places.
