(a) In voting machine polling places, the judges of election shall cast all remaining absentee ballots on a voting machine in the manner prescribed by W.S. 22-9-121 and shall lock and seal the voting machines.  They shall certify in writing that the machine was locked and sealed, stating the time, the number of voters voting on each machine as shown on the public counters, the number on the seal, and the number registered on the protective counter.

(b) Election judges shall then determine the number of votes cast on each voting machine used in the polling place by opening the machine or obtaining a photographic or mechanical printed return sheet from the machine.

(c) After the voting machine is opened or the printed return sheet obtained, an election judge or counting board member shall read and clearly announce the designating number or letter on each counter for each candidate or ballot proposition and the results shown by the counter numbers.  The vote shall be verified by another election judge or counting board member.

(d) In machine polling places, write-in votes shall be counted and the results tallied by the election judges or counting board after the regular ballots are counted.

(e) After the vote has been tallied from a voting machine and before the official count is certified, the judges of election shall subtract any vote recorded on a machine when the machine was inspected prior to opening the polls.

(f) This section does not vitiate the provisions of W.S. 22-9-125 permitting an alternate procedure for counting absentee ballots or the provisions of W.S. 22-14-114(b) permitting the counting of ballots at a central counting center.
