Candidates for office in nonpartisan elections, and proponents and opponents of a
ballot issue, are each entitled to appoint one person to act as a watcher in every
polling place in which they are a candidate or in which the issue is on the ballot. The candidates or proponents and opponents shall certify the names of persons so
appointed to the designated election official on forms provided by the official and
submit the names of the persons selected as watchers to the county clerk and recorder. To the extent possible, the candidate, proponent, or opponent shall submit the names
by the close of business on the Friday immediately preceding the election.
