The use of electronic counting machines is authorized in any election precinct upon
finding and declaration by resolution of the city governing body, and also of the
board of county commissioners of the county in which the election precinct is located,
that the use is advisable or necessary in that precinct. Thereafter, electronic counting machines may be procured, on a temporary or permanent
basis, under terms and conditions, including assumption and division of cost of acquisition
and maintenance by the city and county, agreed upon by the respective governing bodies,
provided the machines being procured have been certified for procurement and use in
the state by the secretary of state according to section 16.1-06-26. Two or more counties may enter an agreement concerning the shared use and transport
between counties of electronic counting machines and apportioning of expenses. Any electronic counting machine used in an election must be so constructed that
when properly operated it registers or records correctly and accurately every vote
