98.101 Specifications for permanent registration binders, files, and forms.--In the permanent registration system, visible record binders, files, and registration forms shall be used as registration books. The binders shall be visible record binders, metal bound with built-in shifts, to hold executed registration forms, with labelholders and followers for sheet protection as necessary. The registration forms shall consist of duplicates, both to be signed by the registrant. One of the original executed forms shall be used for the poll binders, which binders shall have a built-in lock to protect the forms. The poll binders shall be divided in a manner convenient for electors to vote. The other original form shall be used for the office copies and arranged alphabetically, in suitable filing cabinets, thus providing a master list of all electors in the county; however, any county may, as an alternate method, use electronic data processing equipment to fulfill the requirements of this chapter. As additional alternatives, registration forms used for office copies may be microfilmed and such microfilms substituted for the original registration forms; or, when voter registration information, including the voter's signature, is maintained digitally or on electronic, magnetic, or optic media, such stored information may be substituted for the original registration form. Such microfilms or stored information shall be retained in the custody of the supervisor of elections. In the event the original registration forms are microfilmed or maintained digitally or on electronic or other media, such originals may be destroyed in accordance with the schedule approved by the Bureau of Archives and Records Management of the Division of Library and Information Services of the Department of State.
